So a few days ago, I was hanging out with a friend who really got me into playing the bass. We were commenting on the amount of gear I've played/owned over the years and how I've always been searching for the right bass. You know the one: its the one that just fits perfectly in your hands, has that tone you hear in your head, and inspires you to play. I had initially learned to play on a MIM Fender Jazz that I borrowed from him, and had asked him if he still had it. Fortunately he did, so he handed me the bass from its case, pulled out his guitar, fired up the amps and started playing. What happened after that shocked me. That bass felt like an extension of me. It had the right feel, the right tone, etc. We had an amazing jam session and afterwards I went home and pulled out my very first bass that I ever bought: a Squier VM jazz. Playing that was pure bliss. I found it very odd though. For the last year and half, I've been playing my MTD kingston Z4 and more recently my Heir 5 and as much as I love those basses, they just don't do it like that old MIM Fender and my Squier. Don't get me wrong, they're fantastic basses, but something about a Fender made me rethink my entire bass collection. I may be rambling here, but its something I noticed and wanted to share. Anybody have a similar story?
