I have found that every bass has its pros and cons. Some have great tone (which can be disected in millions of ways), some have great looks, some have great resale value, and others have great feel. But focusing on the last attribute, which basses are the most comfortable and why? Think about neck feel, curvature, radius, finish; body shape, weight, balance, position of hardware (pickups, bridge, knobs/switches, rests, etc.); and how well your fingers and hands hold up with the bass over a 4 hour gig. For me, I've got to go Stingrays, Sterlings, and Spectors. Though MM's and Specs have little in common, they seem to have some kind of a similar feel in my hands and end up giving me no problems after I long gig. I do know that a well-broken-in maple fingerboard on a Stingray is amazing to play on--it just feels natural.
