    If we knew the answer to that we'd probably all have it by now. It's a matter of taste.

  2. Good lord there are soooo many answers to this.... it all depends on a bunch of things. Style, personal preference, cost... etc
     
  3. I would choose a Stingray or a Sterling. IMO. It really depends on your style,the sound you want,and your buget. The best one is the one that is best for you.

    There is no best, only different.

    One you can afford.

    Given that, the ones with the "Anti-Suck" circuitry are out of reach for most of us.

    It's probably going to end up being a Sadowsky, although I'm sure Lakland is comparable.

    The one that fits you!

    Your hands, your fingers, your arms, your back, your shoulders, your belly, your ear, your taste and your budget.

    That is definately the best you can buy.

    Next question, please!

    Looking at your profile I suggest a Stingray

    Hey Guys......Laklands are awesome! I own 2! Sadowsky's are great too but my new love is a Mike Lull Modern 4. I suggest you try one before dropping 3000.00 on a Sadowsky!

    $15,000 for your Fender? I guess that sounds about right, since my Spector's up for sale. I'm currently accepting bids starting about $450,000. I can't be flexible in the price, though, because I'm trying to buy 30 Fenders...:D:DLOL!!!




    ...no, I'm not trying to say my Spector is better than Andy's Fender. just making a joke about prices...
