Here is my problem. I see companies say they are putting out a re-issue of a classic bass ( I won't mention names). What I don't understand is that, how can they possibly get the exact same woods, metals, and people to make the instruments. It is a known fact that trees have fallen victim to pollution, and the wood is not the same as it was years ago ( see baseball bats). Secondly, if the instrument was that great in the beginning, why did they change it. Comments please. Thanks.
