Apologize if this is a commonly rehashed topic, but my searches didnt yield the information I was looking for. My next bass is going to be either a Fender American Deluxe Jazz 5 string, or a Music Man Stingray 5. Ive never owned a Music Man, but Ive had two Fenders, the latter of which is an American P Bass that I absolutely love. 2011 model. Price isnt very important here since theyre in the same price range. Im looking for opinions on quality, durability, playability, and most importantly- I need a do it all bass. These two are definitely in the top few for versatility. I usually can only have one bass with me when I go out on cruise gigs , but I need a huge tonal range for all the styles to be as close to authentic as I can get. A few other key points are weight, and ease of access to the upper register, especially when standing. Anything else you consider relevant is appreciated!
