So I know these questions happen all the time but mine may be a little more specific. I am looking at two basses right now and as a latin/straight ahead/rock/funk/whatever guy. They are the Lakland 5502 deluxe fretless and a Tom Clement. I know that the Clements are very customizable, however the 5502 feature several mid controls and settings. I am looking for the most versatile and durable of the two. If they made a fretless 5 fender jazz this point would be moot. Thanks for the replies. Serious only please. I am not interested in arguments as I am looking for experienced responses.
