    I own a Ibanez BTB 400-QM(which i'm selling), and i've been thinking about getting a new bass...
    I love the Spectors, but i can't really find them here(in brazil) and it would cost me LOTS of money to import one of them...
    So which one of this two basses should i get?

    Stingray all the way! Too many reasons to list! I owned a Jazz deluxe for one day, the electronics were horrible.

    Would never by any bass I didn't play. If that is an option I would suggest you go with what works on a similiar if not the same amp you currently play.

    There are lots of good basses!! I prefer the ease of picking any Fender up and playing like I practiced. Gonna be hard to ever get me to switch. That is a personal choice.

    If you can't play it then I guess I would go with the opinons here.

    I recommend getting a passive Fender Jazz and later if you think you need it you can buy a J-retro preamp or something similar. Fender's electronics seem to be kind of sketchy.
