Ok, I thought I had my mind made up... thx to everyone's help. Go w/ a Lakland 55-01. Well, the more I look at this MTD Kingston Heirs, the more I start ponder them. Additionally, I played a MusicMan SUB this weekend, & really kinda liked it,, better than any MIM Fender Jazz I picked up that day, anyways... SO, you've got $700 to spend on a bass, which would YOU pick???
