i've been a satisfied fender player for 16 years and have done about 8 different styles/projects and have never needed more than one or 2 basses depending on the situation. so here's what i'm getting at... after 18 years of bass playing i got my first active bass. i'm able to get a ******** of tones through it and i have a lot of flexibility. now my question is for all of you who own 4-5 or more basses, do you ever use them all? do you actually play in enough different situations/bands/styles that actually warrant that many different tones or changing instruments? just curious to hear what causes TB'ers G.A.S... (no pun intended) .. Mod edit for language again. Profanity must be completely masked.
