Let's tell what we love/hate the most about these fine basses so that someone who's never played them can make a decent comparison. Neck Shapes, weights, feel, sound, finish, service, prices, balance. Assume someone has $3,000 to $5,000 to buy their "keeper" bass-of-a-lifetime and needs help narrowing down the selection. Have your say about your favorites here. If you can share your experiences comparing 2 or more brands, models, types, share it here. Let's explore what makes them different and can we honestly say one is "better" than another. Comparative reviews is what we're after here. Many Thanks in advance for your comments.
