Always shopping for new basses (damn GAS), and I'm wondering what's the big deal about basses weight? I feel like everybody is looking for the lightest bass... I'm very curious to know what's the difference, tone wise... Or if this is just a matter of comfort and playability? I thought the heavier the instrument, the better the sustain and attack... Am I wrong? IE. I've seen a beautifull P-Bass at 10 pounds lately... Should I stay away and search for one more around 8 ? Do heavier basses have a lower resell value? Opinions welcomed!! EDIT : sorry about the 'BID' deal typo in the topic...! Still related though!
