Some time back, there was a thread about basses having a versatile sound. My justly famous quote, "Versatility is over-rated", pretty much summed up how I felt. And while I still feel that something like a P-Bass has more versatility than is sometimes supposed, I've had my eyes opened a bit. I now have a bass that has a multitude of sounds available, and I find most of them usable. It's Jazz-ish when the blend knob is turned toward the bridge, and somewhat P-ish when the blend is toward the neck, and I can truly get a blended sound in-between. I am truly amazed. So, therefore, I take back some of what I said, and must think of a new motto for threads about versatile-sounding basses.
