Just watched a video of live John Scofield with some decent stand-up bass player duo. Presumably during a pandemic. John had a fender deluxe reverb (I think) and an ox box on top. It sounded not like the greatest bedroom tone I've ever heard. But it was John freaking Scofield, so it sounded awesome. Made me think... He doesn't seem to really care THAT much about his tone. Maybe he's more focused on his tasty playing? Tone was ok, but it definitely was not a priority for the guy. Interesting for me, thought I'd share.
