I have a Lakland 44-02, and I'm looking for something with a little less smooth, bassy tone and a little more edgy, slap tone. Because I also want to diversify my arsenal and get a new upright, 4 fretless, and 5 fretted, I am looking for a deal that I may be able to make at least $100 off, but of course I don't want to sacrifice the tone. I would also like a little narrower string spacing (if possible). I have come to the conclusion that my best bet is probably one of the two basses in the title. Which one do you prefer and why? Which one better suits my needs and why? What are the advantages/disadvantages of each in comparison to the other? Anything else I should know? Thank you very much.
