I see the word thrown around A LOT and I'm wondering what it means to the rest of the TB crowd. My personal definition of quality means that a bass works and is worry free. Not in the bare minimum sense but in such a way that I can set it up the way I want so it plays and sound how I want it to for as long as I can see myself playing it. I see a lot of "Brand x basses are higher quality than brand y basses." but after a certain point is that actually worth mentioning. Does anyone ever see that statement and think to themselves "Hmmm, perhaps I should reconsider my position..."? To date, I've ordered three custom basses (the third 3rd is currently being built) and as awesome as they are, I don't particularly see them lasting any longer than, say, a Fender or Ibanez or whatever else have you or less able to get them set up the way I want. Maybe I have low standards or something but quality just seems like a really fuzzy word to me when it comes to basses.
