Voted for the L2K over my ASAT bass only because I ordered the additional single coil mode switch, and my ASAT bass was bought used without one. Other than that, I think that both are incredibly versatile, and I don't have an ergonomic issue with the ASAT bass. There's some minor neck dive, but I usually play with a pick and generally rest my forearm on the ASAT body, so I don't find it unwieldy or anything.

Could not agree more with this. At the end of the day, the relationship that you have with the bass is more important to me than the perceived advantages that could be had by switching basses. All those hours working stuff out on the number 1 bass...you can't approximate that when you switch, in my opinion.

This is especially true when playing live in situations that you can't control. I need to know I can get my tone. When there are problems (and there's always problems), I need to know that I can resolve them quickly and that's when all the experience on the number 1 makes all the difference. Plus the confidence I feel, knowing I can deliver the right sound. I know this because my number 1 and I have done that, lots of time. Yet another thing that can't be approximated when you switch.
