I've been playing Lakland 5's now for years now and I love them, but I'm thinking about going back to a 34" scale 4 string. Heard great things about the Carving SB series, but right now I'm particular interested in the SB4000 and how it compares to some other basses. The other basses I'm looking at are: 1) Lakland Darryl Jones 4-string 2) Lakland 44-60 (JO-4) 3) Fender Marcus Miller 4 4) Fender Geddy Lee Jazz 5) G&L JB-2 I've played all of these except for the Carvin and #1 & #2. Anyone out there who has played them all - or at least the Carvin and a couple of the others? How do you think the Carvin 4-string would stack up against these guys? Also, if you can think of some other bass that I may be leaving out, feel free to chip in.
