Hi, I have been looking for a passive bass with a PJ pickup arrangement. I currently have an older RBX (4 string) that I changed the pickups on. It sounds great now but of course, I'd like to have a five string too. I think I have narrowed it down to the BBP35 and the BB435. They look very similar with the main difference (seemingly) is the country they are built in. I'm undecided as to which to go for. Obviously, the BB435 is about $1000 less expensive. I could drop some new pickups in it and be set for well under a grand. Have any of you played both, side by side, and compared? Thanks for the help.
