    What is really the difference between the crimson burst and brown burst? Why does musicians friend and guitar Center have them as a different bass?

    Also curious to those who have played it, how does it compare to jazz basses and p basses?

    Very unique looking bass.
  3. Played these a couple of times in GC (both were Crimson burst).

    Never a big fan of Ricks (looks or feel) or EMG pickups (usually passive guy) and these bass felt and sounded great to me.

    Never seen the brown burst or know if electronics are different or what not.

    Necks felt closer to jazz profiles.

    I think that the brownburst is what I've seen referred to as tobaccoburst or antiqueburst. I think it looks totally hot. The crimsonburst should be the equivalent of the Ric Fireglo.

    I think that "brownburst" looks much nicer and thus I believe that they will often charge more for a more popular color. Simple supply and demand politics.

    The Stargazer does one sound really well. Neck feels good similar to a J bass. But EMG's sound like ...EMG's, so I can't really compare this to a P or J bass. I enjoyed mine for a while, but I was exploring a larger range of Jazz bass tones so I sold mine.

    If you like the Stargazer, you might like the newer Schecter Ultra Bass. It has a Thunderbird-ish look.
