Stingray5 or Pedulla MVP5?

    I am about to take my first steps in the 5-string world. And I need a bass to do that. These two are available used at a reasonable price. The Pedulla is an all maple, neck through, JJ-pickup configuration. I guess everybody knows what the Stingray is like. It is more familiar to me anyway - my main bass is a 4-string stingray and it's unbeatable for cutting through in a loud rock setting. The 5-stringer would find it's use in a project which is more like r&b/soul stuff.

    Should I play it safe by buying the Stingray or does the Pedulla have something special to offer for the type of music I'm going to play with it?
