Ok so I already have to basses... I have a Squier P-Bass and an Ibanez Soundgear. I love them both but they each have there goods and bads. I like the body on both the Ibanez and my Fender Squier. The FS body i like better when i'm standing up because it makes me feel like I'm actually holding something. Where as the Ibanez body i like when i'm sitting down cause it's really light and comfortable but the lower horn usually ends up poking me in the crotch and it gets kinda annoying. Sound wise i think the Ibanez does the better job here because i like the humbucker kinda things. but i don't like the active pickups because of the batteries. but i have tried out my friend's dad's MusicMan and i do like the humbucker sound it has. Neck wise i enjoy the 24 frets that the Ibanez has because when I'm playing alone i usually do like some soloing up above the 12 fret so it's good to have 24 frets but sometimes the super thin neck that Ibanez has feels a little TOO thin but i really enjoy the feel of the FS neck. It's got like a good grip on it... like I'm really holding something.

But over all i hardly play me Ibanez. and use my Fender Squier a lot for worship team. So since i hardly play my Ibanez i was thinking about selling it? and if i sell it (for about 250) i could afford the Laguna I'm about to tell you about below this lol

But i've been looking at this Laguna. I think it has a good mix of everything that i want between the two basses and my prior experience. But if you have had an experience with the Laguna or you know can think of something that may be a good choice just please let me know. Has anyone had experience with the type of wood for the fret board?

no. ATK will sound better, and will actually be an upgrade. you have 2 great basses, you want a powerful upgrade when you do so, you seem to have one of the better affinity P-basses, as opposed to waiting until you can sell your Ibanez to buy an equally lesser bass.

Dude selling the Ibanez for that Laguna is a bit of a trade-off really. I second the humanity's motion for buying an Ibanez ATK, they're great.

Ibanez ATK.

cheapest runs 500. very thick feel. strong humbucker sound, punchier than your SR300, but able to get pretty thumpy like your P-bass.

The ATK is an amazing bass, and possibly my next aquisition (that, or a Squier VM). I'd go for that if I was you.

Nice Avatar ;o.

It really seems like you're wanting to sell a solid bass for something of potentially less quality.

It's possible that one won't hurt your crotch as much(as the lower horn angles upwards a tad more), but it really isn't much of an upgrade from your current. Perhaps if you sold your current one and used the funds for this one. It is active, though :l.
