Looking for a 5 string. Sadowsky M5-24, Yamaha Nathan East, G&L L2500 all have similar placements - humbuckers close to the bridge. I play a Nathan East and thing it sounds nice. I play a Sadowsky and it seems really modern to my ear. I haven't played a G&L for a while, but I don't recall it being particularly modern like the Sadowsky. What is it I'm hearing - or think I'm hearing? Are the pickups/preamps really that much different? I'm trying to decide what 34" scale 5 string to go with for church and smooth jazz gigs and these are top contenders. Any thoughts?
