After a recent month of GAS. I have taken stack and realized that except for a few brands of boutique jazz basses, I have owned virtually every kind of bass guitar there is. Four, Five, Six stringers, fretted and fretless; Neckthrough and bolt-on; domestic and import, $200 and $2,000, active and passive, no name and high status, I have owned them all. The bottom line is that a bass that plays good and sounds good is nice to own, one that plays poorly, and sounds poorly, is no fun. I really don't know if there is a point to this story except that I have have enjoyed playing almost every bass I have ever owned and I have also felt every bass I have ever owned came up short on something at one time or another. The perfect bass may exist, but my GAS, IMO, is much more about me than any instrument. Maybe, I will buy, say a Sadowsky one day and be satisfied forever, but I suspect that my eye will always wander. I guess i just better keep my savings up!
