Say I were to get the 605 for $600 new and the DR-5 for about $500 used, in terms of versatility (ergonomics playing different styles, finger/slap), actual usable tones, and playability which one would be my best bet. I'd be mainly playing Gospel, so I really appreciate high sustain and a tone that can cut through. small notes: -Heartfield DR-5 is a MIJ apparently Fender-associated-made? I've heard nothing but great words and experiences with their basses, I'm just wondering if there is anything I'm overlooking, no doubt it's a well-built instrument -both 34" scales -18mm spacing on the 605, 19mm spacing on the DR-5 -DR-5 has a graphite reinforced neck (does that help with sustain?) -do any of these basses have any significant dead spot problems? -in the future I could see myself replacing the preamp, but out of the box which one would satisfy my needs? -which one would you say has higher over clarity in terms of tone, whether active or passive, clarity as in all frequencies?
