Hello folks! Kindly need your advice. I am a guitar player. Will buy a bass for home studio purpose (I will play it). Mostly rock/pop genre. I am choosing between two ESP ltd basses. The stream 204 is 550$ and B-154DX is about 350$. Here are the samples: Stream 204 and 154DX The technical specs show, beside obvious difference in cutaways, that the stream has two same pups and the cheaper 154dx has different pups. The question is which one should be easier to play for a guitar player? As I understand they have both same scale lenght, meaning that the 154dx will have the first fret on the same distance to reach but less space between frets since it's full 24 note scale, right? Not taking the price into consideration what are your thoughs overall? Pup upgradeability, playability. Any downsides to stream 204 not having the top cutaway? Thank you very much, Kind regards!
