So heres the deal. I am currently in search for the perfect bass. I currently own three basses and love them dearly, but I am looking to purchase an American high-end bass that will be "My Bass" if you know what I mean. I learned to play a long time ago on a Squier PJ Bass, a mid-90's model. In recent years I have upgraded nearly all of the hardware, electronics and added some SD Quater Pounder Pups. When I began my search I was just looking for the best P-Bass on the market... I came across the P-Bass deluxe and was sure it was the bass for me. Later, browsing around my local guitar center I picked up a music man stringray for the first time and was very impressed. I currently own the squier p-bass (upgraded), a schecter elite-4 and an Ibanez SR755. I have never owned a Deluxe P-Bass or any Music Man bass. So the question I have for everyone is, which bass is the better bass and why? What have you found to be true for high end fenders and music mans? How does the quality compare overall, and which is the more versitile bass? Below are pictures of the two basses I am considering: Thanks.
