The B4 OPN is a pretty bass, IMO. It has Bartolini electronics, like many Ibanez basses. Gerr, does it sound like an Ibanez bass?

Hugorj, you should also look for info on this bass at talkbass.com - both in the bass forum and gear reviews. I don't know what info is there, but usually you can find something. cheers.

Now we put the 74 GB on “play”, and taking into account that the style that you want is the need for versatility, I indicate that it ends up being my suggestion. That's because it has a configuration of pickups, which currently is very low in selected custom, just for the versatility. It is the blend of style Music Man pickups along with a Jazz Bass style. With this you have both the medium pitched sound needed for Slaps and other similar techniques, as well as the heaviest severe for stronger bases, all in one instrument.

Like Gerr, I would be more interested in the GB74 and C4H than the B4 because of the pickups.

Hugorj, if you want sound variety, use the GB74. BUT you like of Duran Duran, so the sound of the B4 is similar to JT's peavey.

What do you think Sid?
