I’m finally getting back to playing after about 16 years! My background was from my late teens/early 20s playing in a rock/metal band. I’ve gotten a little older and my choice of music has grown even heavier and darker. However, lol as crazy as it sounds, I have a huge love for Reggae! More specifically the kind that some call “white-boy Reggae”, West Coast Reggae or SoCal Reggae. Before I dive in and spend thousands on gear, I’m setting a low budget for now just to see how serious this becomes. I’ve done a bit of research over the past few days on some guitars and I think I have it narrowed down to a Spector or Music Man... now I’ve already searched the forums on comparisons between the 2 or “which are better”, but only the higher end versions are compared. Remember I’m setting a low budget for now so I’m talking specifically about a Spector Q5 and a Sterling MM. I have the opportunity to purchase either one locally. I realize it’s going to come down to playing them and seeing which fits me best, however I won’t know for sure till after I choose my gear and some EQing. So, for Reggae with more low end tone, what would you guys choose? Any help is appreciated.
