The battery access of the stingray is very well built. It moves out of the cavity, and itīs very easy to change it.

Of course itīs a detail. Sound is the question. Iīve never tried G&L, so I canīt evaluate it. On the other hand, Stingray rocks IMHO and itīs electronics are not noisy (this I can tell for sure).



: Looking to upgrade my bass and would like to hear from those with experience with these two basses.

: I've read that both basses are solid instruments and adaptable for many playing styles and applications, enhanced by the pick-ups configurations that can be dialed in with the toggle switches. The G&L can go passive too and work without a battery.

: Also I've heard that the G&L electronics can hum or be so noisy that this bass might be hard to deal with in the studio, which would really suck! Is this anyone's experience? I also read that the battery access plate is screwed direclty into the wood.

: The G&L looks really nice, has dual pick-ups vs. one and has been quoted a little bit cheaper to me that the Stingray 5.

: The only negative regarding the Stingray 5 was that the tone can be a little hot sometimes.

: Comments please.
