Ok. I am a former keyboard player from the '80's that has been wanting to play bass. I should have done this years ago and in fact when I was a teen in the 80's I almost started bass instead of keyboards. So, I'll admit that I am a big Duran Duran fan of the early albums and like early Simple Minds and lots of my music I noticed not only had good keys, but great bass players in the new wave era. Now I'm about to buy my first bass and I want to buy quality. Two basses that I have narrowed it down to are the Ibanez SR300 in GREY and the Peavey Grind 4 BXP in BLACK. I've tried the Ibanez and was only able to try the Peavey in a 5 string. The Ibanez felt nice since its slim and not too big. Question: In your opinion which bass would be better considering what I've mentioned? Yes, I've heard "whatever" feels right, but I just want people's opinions of the Peavey vs the Ibanez. The Peavey's PUPs are passive, so is one difference. Tell me YOUR opinions of each of these and which would be better.
