    It looks like the 301 will give you slightly more control over your sound since it has 2 volume and 2 tone controls. Gerenally, though, you're better off with their Brice models, which are higher quality.

    I very much enjoy the second one. Always wanted two tone knobs on my basses...plus, the headstock (besides looking neat) is tiny, and would thus reduce any chance of neck-dive.
