    based on the finish, I'd go with the SMRS1605B

    I don't wait 30 minutes after eating, to go swimming.
    I'm going with the blue one because I like single coils. My SR2605 Premium has Nordstrand big singles, too and it sounds great!

    No problem. I've never used Hartke and only recently realized I can even buy their stuff here in Canada so there's that. I have talked to someone on here who swears by Hartke and Ibanez. So I'm sure you can't go wrong there either.

    Hello again Duke, I just listened to some YouTube videos for the G & L research 2500. All I can say is, wow! The sound on that Bass is amazing. I’m rethinking my selection. Although, $1800 is currently out of my price range. The Tribute is a lot cheaper but it probably does not have the tonal variety as the Research version, I assume. Thank you for bringing G&L to my attention.

    I have been a G&L guy since 1986
    The Tribute models get rave reviews here on TB
    I my understanding the electronics and hardware are the same in both models, but play one and see for yourself
