Anyone have this happen to them? I started playing bass in 1981. Haven't stopped for more than a few months since then. Since I started, I've gone through just about every type of bass known to man. When I started, it was Ibanez all the way. Active pickups, thin necks, rosewood fretboards. For years I replaced one active rosewood bass for another, from Ibanez to BC Rich to Traben, back to Ibanez. Then a few years something clicked, and I went passive. It started with Thunderbirds. That classic muddy thump really grabbed me. Something old school about passive pickups, I think. I changed my whole playing style. Then I spent a year playing nothing but fretless bass. ***?!? Not sure where that came from. Now, suddenly I find myself back to basics, playing (of all things) a passive P copy (albeit heavily modded). And totally loving the tones available. Maple fretboard, passive pups. Now we're talkin'. Has anyone else gone from active to old school over the years, or made such a drastic change in basses that it made you go "Hmmm..."? I know tastes change with time, but this is a total night and day change. Anything more drastic and I'd be a (!!) guitarist!!!
