Hello, all. If anyone can help me through my current dillema, I'd be much obliged. I've been playing for 13 years off and on, and am just getting around to buying my first REAL bass. I've been thinking about a Carvin LB75, but I have no idea what it sounds like. Right now, I'm convinced that the Spector Neckthru has the most beautiful sound out there. Does anyone know if a Carvin with a solid maple neck and body would come close to the Spector sound? It does mean a savings of about $600, which would go a mighty long way towards a new amp.....but that Spector is SOOOO nice. If the Carvin doesn't even come close, it's not worth it to me. Thanks!
