So last year, one of the guitarists in Polyphia caused everyone to go mental because he made a reference to "boomer bends" - you know what I'm talking about, those bends that are totally the staple of bluesy boomer classic rock. Nothing wrong with them, I've done them, but they certainly do cast the music you're playing as being part of a specific era of modern music. Being Gen-X, I get to belong to a generation that ceased being discussed or relevant after the 90s, so sitting on the sidelines of the generational war, I can't help but wonder.... Are P-Basses the "boomer bends" of bass? I've owned P-basses, and have one in my basement. Never really touch it. I prefer my Spector, G&L, Jazz, Höfner, and even my mikro. Don't know what it is, but there's all the different basses that just seem to be...more appealing to me. And yet, there's a huge amount of people on here that are high ranking officers in the P-Bass army. Nothing wrong with that - you get to like what you like, and more power to you. I see a lot of comments that talk about how Leo got it right the first time - obviously not something he believed. It also seems to be that people consider the P-Bass sound to be "the sound", but it seems like that is also tied to the music of the past, as opposed to the future. With each generation of removal from being a boomer, it just seems like these are sentiments that are increasingly less likely. For the folks that REALLY love P-Basses, are you mostly boomers? For the folks that are "meh" when it comes to them, are you not boomers? To be clear, not interested in arguing the merits or lack thereof of the P-Bass. More interested in figuring out whether P-Bass love is correlated with your age.
