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.
