I have to say I love my Premium, the SR1205E, and it really did shine when gigging it this last week. I moved some gear to get it and there are no regrets on my part. Very solid basses.
I can't say anything bad about the Prestige models, I just couldn't afford one. If I could, I would give them a serious look as well.
Playing bass is a lot like playing chess. Easy to do but it takes a lifetime to master.
