I have yet to try either one and was wondering other people's opinions. I became interested in the idea of the TRB because at a music store I tried out an RBX775 and it killed the Ibanez SR's around that same price range. So what bass would you recommend? Also, feel free to mention other brands/models. I do have specific features I am looking for= a bolt on neck, a good heavy wood for the body, 2 humbuckers, 5 string, around $1200 price range. I want my next bass to be a really nice instrument. So any comments or opinions would be appreciated!
