    Simply put, if you could have one or the other, which would it be ?

    I'd take the DJ-but this is truly an apples vs oranges situation.

    Well The SR5 is my favorite production level 5 string. The only reason I am letting mine go is because I just bought Bill H's 5594 and now I would like to have a 5 string Jazz because I am in a big 10 pc funk band and the Jazz really fits tonally with a lot of the older tunes we play. You cant go wrong with a Jazz or an SR5 in my opinion. I am not that crazy about the DJ's spacing and weight but for just a few songs a night I would love the tone of it. The weight issue is the only thing that I don't dig about Skylines.

    bump for more results !
  7. Both great basses, me, I'd have the 'ray, but I just like 'rays. The DJ5 is a fantastic bass, a mate of mine has one, and it's just stunning. Put the two names in a hat, shut your eyes, and pick one.

    DJ5 anyday. Nothing against MM, I just don't like the sound of that MM pup there.

    Hmm...interestingly enough, I find that to be the only issue I have with SR5's. :cool: If you shop around, and are patient, you can find reasonably lighter basses in each brand. My DJ5 is right at 9lbs.

    I am currently on the hunt for an SR5 to go along with my DJ5. :D
