Hello! This is my first post. Getting right at the point, I'm due for an upgrade from an Ibanez GSR-200 bass and while I don't have the money to pick up one from the 500+ range, I'm thinking of buying a 5-string bass as an upgrade. I was pretty much convinced that I would be buying a Peavey Grind-5 in natural brown finish, but then I saw the Sterling SUBs out. I've been reading the thread regarding the SUBs and am pretty much aware of the issues the SUB may have. Oh well.. So I guess this are the two that I'm choosing on. http://www.americanmusical.com/Item--i-PEV-GRNTB5-NATWC and http://www.music123.com/bass/sterling-by-music-man-s.u.b.-ray5-bass-guitar I hope you could help me narrow down what is preferable. In terms of the music I play, I try to be as diverse as I can be but I play more on the jazzy/contemporary praise and worship side as I play for my church. Thanks in advance!
