Haha, yeah, I know it's nothing new, but I was reminded of it this weekend. A bassist friend of mine got a new bass that was super revealing on the high end. You hear all the fret noise and stuff. I was thinking I would hate it (I do small amounts of bass playing) because you'd hear all my sloppy playing. But when he played it sounded amazing. It revealed his hands!
