I have noticed that a TON of people on this site play fender basses and everyone seems to love them. For some reason I just can't see the fascination with them. Any P bass I have heard recorded just sounded very dull and empty to me. I just can't get into the tone of them at all. But there is a problem. I have been playing a spector euro neck thru bass for a while and it's got great tone but it's almost too bright. I have almost no treble coming out of it just to avoid clipping from my amp. Also, I just got a peavey cirrus and I just can't get the sound I want out of it. It keeps sounding very honky to me. The best tone I have gotten out of a bass was from my Warwick SSII but unfortunaly I sold it to pay for school. I'm just getting very frustrated with tone and I'm thinking of giving fender another chance just because they seem to be the tried and true bass for a lot of people. I'll probably end up going with a jazz bass but I just wanted to see what people's opinions are on fenders and why so many people love them.
