Ok...all your basses have to go, you only get to keep one, which is it and why? Yes, I know that's a horrible thought as each bass has its own character that draws you too it, but I am curious as to what draws one to a particular bass over the others. I bought my American Standard Jazz as a back up to my RIC about 2004 or so. For the first year it didn't get much play time, it was just 'there'. It was almost forgotten about at times. After that first year I decided to use it for its first gig and before I knew it, it became my primary bass. I'll go thru phases with the other ones, but the Jazz always comes back to to my hands. It makes the trip to every gig, without fail, even if it doesn't get any stage time for a particular night. It is reliable, I think it is beautiful to look at, I love the tone and it is simply the one that feels the best when I am playing it. It's starting to show the wear and tear of constant playing over the years, but its still the one. It has no particular feature that makes it stand out over the others and My other Jazz bass doesn't have the same allure. There is just something about this one just falls into place for me. What is the main horse in your stable? Any particular reason or is it 'just because'?
