    I need 24 fret to cover some song like orion.
    My requirement is : Strong Neck and Cut through in the mix.
    Budget is under $1200~1300.
    Except Spector,I had been used it for a while.

    You can buy 2 used Carvin LB70's, or one new one built to your specs.

    Warwicks may be a good choice. Streamers are an easy transfer from Spectors, yet with a different sound. Btw, what exactly do you mean by "strong neck"?

    dalkowski, I had no idea Bongo was a 24-fret beast?

    Ooh, ooh. Much cheaper, but probably better than all the other suggestion you'll get, just go out and buy a Dano Longhorn.

    Just go and buy one anyway, they're cheap. Buy one and listen to what everyone else says. Then ignore them because you're happy with what you've got.

    Then sit back and smile because you're happy. And got a pile of spare money in your pocket.

    Then get real and buy a Rickenbacker. Not so many frets, but you'll get laid more ...

    My used Washburn Force 4 ABT has 24 frets, active pickups, and is quite loud. Their newer models are similar.

    I haven't tried one myself, but I've heard a bit about the discontinued Fender Jazz Bass 24. It's active only, made in Korea and equipped with Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders as it's stock pickups. I've seen it come in the pimped-out quilted look and an extremely minimalist flat black and a matching headstock. (yay matching headstocks!) They are a little rare, but not impossible to find.

    I almost bought one for the hell of it last year when Alto Music had over a dozen of them on sale for $500, which was considerably lower than the normal sticker price. (I'm guessing they grabbed some other sellers overstock)

    I would think if you are going to spend 1300 you should be able to figure this out for yourself..what are 30 different opinions going to do for you when you can research?
