Hey TB. I've owned over 100 basses in the last 20 years, in that time I've learned a lot about what makes a bass great (for me) and crappy (again, IMO). One thing that intrigues me is the tone of lighter basses, sub 8.5 lbs to be specific. Every light bass I've owned or played was very resonant, lively, and had a significant reduction of the typical bolt-on dead spots. The few anchors (11lbs+) I've had were dead and soulless. Anyone else have these findings?
