GSR200 vs JS2

Greetings all.. As a guitarist I'm tired of programming MIDI bass lines and looking to get a bass I can record mostly/all DI. I'm not looking for anything special/expensive and it won't be played with live or anything.

Currently I'm eyeing the Ibanez GSR200, the Jackson Spectra JS2 and the Jackson Concert JS2.

I've read a lot of good about the versatility of the GSR200 and I'm leaning towards that but wanted to see if anyone had any opinions on it vs the two Jackson models. Would the Concert model's humbucking pickups limit the tone much over the P/J pickups of the GSR or Spectra? I'll be using it for a wide variety of music styles and I'm not afraid to do some tweaking of tone via EQ/plugins.

Lastly, does anyone have any experience ordering a guitar/bass through Sweetwater or Musician's Friend? Do they do a decent job of setting them up before shipping them out? I'm not crazy about the only local store option here.
