Took my mom to the Dr. She recently had surgery so I'm her "designated driver" for long trips to the doc. Then we went to some music stores! Couldn't find a Peavey Cirrus to save my life I played import Spectors, wasn't impressed... they didn't have any Czech or USA made though I played a Washburn something or other... yuck. I played a couple of MIA Jazzes and P's... they were OK. Not even close to the Road Worn I played recently... it blew every one of the MIA's I played away in every aspect. Didn't see any Road Worn basses today but jammed for a few minutes with a guy playing a Road Worn Strat... it sounded good. I played every Stingray and Stingray HH they had in the store. One had a SERIOUS neck issue. The rest were... OK. I came home and plugged in my cheap ass Ibanez ATK, Stalin is his name, and it is a better bass in my ears and hands than anything I played today. I left the last store feeling like something is wrong with me. Guess I should be happy that I'm happy with a cheap ass bass My mom knows nothing about bassses, she liked the "pretty" ones because they were "pretty," but said that my ATK sounds better than anything I played today to her ear as well.
