Hi all and Happy New Year! I own a Sterling and a Steinberger XQ. Between
the two I love playing the 'berger because of it's playability-nice small
neck all the way up to the 24th fret and I just love the way the graphite
sounds. Unfortunately for me I am in the Philippines and I have to wait for
new bridge saddles from the USA to be able to play it so I've been playing the
Sterling lately. Lately I've been working on jazz walking lines and I favored
the Steinberger because it wasn't over aggressive like the Sterling is-sometimes
I wish I could de-punchify it. I realize that neither is quite the ideal for
walking bass on electric and just because I love the Steinberger I'm looking to
get rid of the Sterling for either an old Precision w/ flatwounds ala Monk
Montgomery or perhaps a Hofner Beatle Bass. I know Chris Wood from Medeski,
Martin and Wood uses one but I'd just like to get your opinions on what would be
a great bass for swingin'. I also thought about going fretless, what do you
think?
