  1. I've been going back and forth between these three for the last few weeks. I lean in one direction and then another. So what do you all think? I need a push...

    I had the BTB for a few days before returning it, not that it wasn't good, but I just thought I didn't explore everything enough to be happy.

    FWIW I would change the preamp on whichever one to an EMG BQC...

    Sorry not a fan of your choices....i personally would go with FBASS!!!!!
    ...sorry ...just my $0.02 cents
  3. I would love to be at that sort of price point, the choice would be simple then. Alas, I am a slave to my sub $1200 budget and can't see going beyond that in the foreseeable future...

    That is a ridiculous price jump. You do realize that not every one can afford basses with a price tag as high as that.
    That said I have a MTD Kingston Z5 and it is an awesome bass, very well made. I love it!

    Normally I really hate it when people reply to a thread like this with suggestions that the OP didn't list. So I can't believe I'm typing this, but... have you considered a Carvin? You could get a pretty sweet 6, customized with features you like, for that kind of budget.

    Same here. They make very good stuff for the price. If you can stretch your budget a bit Tom Clement can make you whatever you want. Put your deposit down now and save up for the final payment.... Just sayin...:cool:
