I agree. Not fantastic choices. But then again, I don't really care. If it has 5 strings and works through an amp I'll play it.

Of those, the LTD.

May I ask why you're limited to those two?

If it's for the looks, at least get an Ibanez or Traben or something...
Nope, no sig here.

Well since Schecter and Ibanez have popped up, I might as well throw Traben into the pot.

Indeed, that is definitely a worthy mention. Try a Traben at one of your local Music instrument retailers, you may be pleasantly surprised about their quality.

wait, he may have found really good deals or something, he stated agreement with me.

before you start giving him new options, see what he is paying for theses things.

I have a ESP LTD B-305, and I love the thing to death, so I'd say go with the ESP. Dean doesn't really make great basses honestly, I'd avoid them like the plague, esp if you have to pay full price for one.
Shecter makes great stuff, but Ibanez makes bad basses.

Which model are you referring to? any model of SR series and above have been some of the nicest basses for the money I have ever played.

I've had terrible experiences with soundgear basses of almost every model and string combination, the only one that seems to be reliably decent is their 6 string model. All the others either buzz incessantly or have some other problem with the way they play that just makes them. The one exception to this rule that I've found has been the BTB series, which seem to be decent. But given hes looking at a 105, or a q5, hes not in the market for a super expensive bass, like the BTB series is.

Ibanez has very low action.
they just do.
that explains the buzzing. 10 seconds with a little wrench, you're fine.

Hey thanks, I never ever never thought of raising the action.

**** didn't help. Hence, my statement.

Perhaps you're not fretting hard enough? Or there's the possibility that you're unintentionally striking your strings against your frets with your plucking hand.

If none of the above apply, keep turning that screwdriver.
Hi.

Or perhaps Ibanez makes bad Soundgear basses, since they're the only bass make/model/manufacturer that I have that problem with. The action on my ESP is set way low, and I don't buzz nearly as much as I did on any of the sound gears that I've played, same with my squire, same with my buddy's Fender, same with basically every bass I've played, with the exception of all but 1 Soundgear.
