I'm new to bass, and I just tried a Yamaha BB434 bass at a store, and it felt really nice. What is the consensus on Yamaha bass guitars?

So, after trying a few things like replacing the string, cleaning out the nut slot, etc. I decided to just bring it back to GC to see if I could exchange it for the exact same thing.

After nerding around online I found 2 basses that caught my attention, the SCHECTER STILETTO STEALT 5, and the YAMAHA BB435.

The yamaha has a more classic vibe with P-J passive pick-ups, and shorter scale ( heard it's better for slap).
