I'm looking to get a new 5 string, and I've got the opportunity to get either one of these basses. How do they compare? I did a search and from what I've gathered, the G&L can pull off all of the same tones as the Stingray 5, but not vice-versa. I've seen and played a few G&Ls and person and they are very nice, and I was most impressed.. however, the Stingray 5 is a legend of a bass, so I'm torn. I'm looking for something that will put out a thick, midrange-focused rock tone above all else. I think both of these are probably capable of this, but I want to hear everyone's thoughts on these basses.
