Here's an interesting question (hopefully one that hasn't been asked TOO much). There is much discussion concerning the versatility of a bass. The L2500, for example, is often lauded for its wide range of tones. I guess that's true, but a more fundamental question is just how much are we required to change our tones to begin with? I usually don't mess with mine much except to turn up and down my high and low freq. bands....do you guys require versatility because you play in different kinds of bands?
