    i went a similar decision but related to the 4 strings versions, tried them both and ended buying a GL L 2000.

    much better bass to my hands and ears. i suggest you to try the GL L2500, five string version of the L2000 i own,

    good luck

    I don't know if it's similar in price, but if you're looking at the Fender P and J 5-strings I think you should also check out the Fender Roscoe Beck. I own a Precision 5-string, but think I should perhaps have bought the Roscoe Beck instead. A Jazz bass is probably considered more versatile than the P, but the Roscoe Beck can do some of the P-bass sounds as well.
