: 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.

Hey man
The stingray5's signal is a little hot, not really a bad thing just adjust for it. You are talking about two basses that in my opinion have more in common than they are different. Since it is such a close call I think your choice should boil down to which bass FEELS just right ............
