When I recently uppgraded to something better than my old Cort, which I was learning on. I first decided on the Ibanez 500, especially since I loved the thin neck. Yes, small hands. But after trying one alongside a couple of Fender Jazzes, I ended up whith a Jazz Modern Player. The US Jazz I tried was sweet, but way to expencive for me. Also I felt the MP whith it's humbucker pups gave me just that bit of extra punch and power. The Ibanez didn't quite give me the sound and feel I wanted. Don't know if it had anything to do with active vs passive. But I'm happy knowing I'm not dependant on a battery in my bass now.
