When it comes to bass, I've always used Schecter or B.C. Rich, so personally, I'd say Schecter. You know their good quallity.

Electric - you plug it into a power outlet in the wall and the music comes from little speakers in the guitar.

I have a 4 string studio and its awesome. The traben has the jazz PU so it will be a TAD more versatile. However, the looks on that traben is a bit much for me. Fairly similar basses otherwise. Oh, the Studio has NT construction, which will have better fret access. Plus the Traben bridge thing seems a bit gimmicky to me. If it makes THAT much of a difference, everyone would be doing it.

Holy crap you sound like a product placement...


Anyways, both the Schecter and Traben are good basses, but I've found Trabens to be pretty heavy, and the bridges to be tacky.

They're pretty similar otherwise.


Also, they're both probably the most cliche metal basses that kids buy nowadays.

My traben phoenix 5 isn't heavy at all. I was expecting it to weigh a ton, but it is a nice weight overall.

I've had nothing but good experiences with the Schecter Stiletto basses, that's why I own an Elite 5. The schecter gets my vote, I find the bridge on the traben to be a little ridiculous.
