I am pondering on adding another 28,6" scale bass to my collection, since I love my Ibanez Mikro, which has actually become my main bass. I feel tempted to take the risk of not really knowing what I get by buying a neon green Jackson Minion instead of another Mikro, but far from sure if this would be a wise choice. One of the things that holds me back is that I think I prefer the medium frets of the Mikro to the jumbo frets of the Minion, especially since the frets are already so close together on the short neck, making me think jumbo frets would make the fretboard feel too cluttered and making fretting properly more difficult. Also I honestly prefer 2 tuners on each side of the head stock like on the Mikro to all 4 on one side as on the Minion. Another factor is that the Mikro has slightly better upper fret access too, with the lower horn cut all the way down for the 21th and 22nd fret being free to reach, while the lower horn on the Minion is cut so only the 20th fret really is free, with the 21th and 22nd basically laying on the body of the bass. Additionally I slightly prefer the overall aesthetics of the Mikro design, where the design of the Minion comes off to me as a bit clumsy and unsophisticated in comparison. However that does actually have it's own kind of goofy charm, and that neon green color is pretty enthralling to me with it's striking bold and luminously suggestive aura of ultimate exorbitance. Another plus to the Minion is that the neck has graphite enforcement, though the neck of my specific Mikro is amazingly stable, probably even the most stable neck I ever had on any guitar or bass, so the question is if those graphite enforcement rods really is that huge of an advantage in reality. Finally in favor of the Minion, from the few demos there are to find on YouTube featuring it, the stock pickups seems to be much more to my liking than the stock ones on the Mikro, as in much more punchy and seemingly also having more clarity and better definition, but not sure how much that should weight in my decision either, as I am likely going to replace the stock pickups anyway down the line, as I did on my Mikro. All in all, from what I have written in this post, it seems like the Mikro has a clear lead, but really I am actually far from as sure as it might seem, actually I am really tempted to take the risk of venturing into the unknown by acquiring that neon green Minion instead of another Mikro. I guess my point with this post is fishing for any experience, thoughts and/or advice that might help me decide, for instance would there be any reason to think that I might actually end up preferring the jumbo frets of the Minion over the medium frets of the Mikro, even if it seems counter intuitive to me with the already sparse fretboard space on the short neck? Anything that might help to make the choice more clear for me will be really welcome.
