To have almost traded my Hot Rod P-Bass for the Ibanez BTB. Not that the BTB is a bad bass by any measure, just not me. I guess I needed something to make me realize what I really had here in the bass that I currently own. For me there was no comparison. After playing around with the Ibanez for around two hours it was difficult for me to dial in a tone that I really enjoyed. The sounds were almost too clean, and there were just too many options and switches to fiddle with. I decided to plug in my Fender and out came that warm buttery organic sound that I fell in love with in the first place. I've found that i really enjoy the sound of a passive bass. I do most of my tone shaping through my amp. So anyway, my GAS has actually been tempered for a while now. I am using the money that I would have spent on the BTB to completely refurbish my fretless Ric 4001.
