I am on the verge of considering the world of 5 strings and have narrowed my selection down to either of these two to GAS over: Fender Roscoe Beck 5 G&L L-2500 I've read every review of both on Harmony Central and every post I could find here. They both seem to be excellent basses. I'm leaning towards the RB because I like the passive sound, but then again the G&L can be run in passive and also gets high marks for it's sound. The width at the nut is 1.751" on the G&L and 1.875" on the RB. Doesn't seem significant, but I saw a lot of talk about the "meatiness" of the RB's neck and how many people don't like it. I currently play a Fender MIA Precision 4 string. The P's neck is "meaty" in it's own right when compared to a jazz. Would this give me a headstart on adjusting to the RB's neck? As of now, I really like both basses with a slight tendency towards the RB, but am worried about that "baseball bat neck". Any insight from someone who has played both would be great as I would have to buy either online and cannot play them locally first. My handsize would be considered "average". Also, for the RB does anyone have a pic of one in sunburst? Thanks!
