I cant sleep and have been thinking about what new bass i will be buying. So far these are the only two basses ive found that do both active and passive. They are both also aggressive sounding and have many tonal possibilities. They also go for around the same price, with the jaguar being used. I tend to play punk, post-hardcore, metal (thrash usually), post rock, stoner and doom. So 9/10 i would prefer an aggressive tone, that can get really heavy with fuzz. I also tend to play in standard, the lowest tuning probably drop a for mastodon, but thats rare. I would want an very sturdy bass that can handle being knocked around a little and would last me a while. my budget for a new bass would be 700-800 max. I dont get the chance to go to GC a lot so the reviews online are very important in my decision making. These two basses seem to fit all of my requirements, however if you know about another bass you think would fitgood let me know. I really cant decide between the two. I play through a gk mb500 and mbe410, and use a pickle pie b, hardwire reverb, and a flashback delay. just so you can get an idea of what the basses would be used with.
