Hi to all; I'm relatively new here, but not new to playing bass. I'm having a terrible time deciding between these two basses. I play a lot of different types of music, and I'm currently in a band that plays mainly hard rock. I have played both these basses at length and love both of them. I really like the Warwick's tone, but the neck is a little thick; maybe it just takes some getting used to. The Lakland with Barts has a tone I like equally well, but it's different from the Thumb. The neck on the Lakland is extremely comfortable. I'm driving myself crazy trying to make a decision.
