If you were to own only one bass like the featured bassist (Craig Schoedler)...... which bass would you play? Reading his article on his web page he says he has but one bass which is the Ken Smith. I would go for the new Fender Precision Deluxe 5 I think that it would cover all of my basses. I'm not sure if it has a passive mode but it would be a nice feature. I know there has been similar threads but heh...lets start a new one! I know in reality most of us bassist find if very hard to settle for just one bass. There is always a good excuse for another one!
