Reading other threads spurred this. Many people seem to think that a Precision bass is the end all answer. Fits any genre, any gig. If you have one bass it should be a Precision. If you don't have one, get one at all costs. Some are partially sarcastic, but many seem real. Are we still at this point? With all the different kinds of basses available to us, we still feel that it's a P bass or you're not worth my time? I mean, I suppose I could get one and I'd get used to it after a while. I mean, after all, all the great recordings were made with one. Why did anyone bother building anything else?
