I'm banging my head against the wall on this one... After pretty extensive shopping and research, these two are the main contenders for my hard-earned cash. I've played both basses several times, but have never been able to do a real A/B comparison through the same amp at the same time. I have a killer Jazz-style bass already, so I don't need to cover "that" sound with one of these. I want something different--more "modern" with enough lows to support the music and enough mids/highs to cut through. Something rich/plenty of overtones. Both basses seem to fit the bill in the shop. I'm curious as to how well each of these would fit the bill in a LIVE situation. I play rock, funk, prog, blues, motown. My rig is an old EA iAMP and a SWR Goliath Jr. Thanks!
