    I'm looking for a good backup for my MM Stingray 5 <$700. Is there anything else with similar tone? I tried the OLP. It sucks.
     
  2. Maybe try out the Lakland Skyline 55-01. the only problem is your MusicMan may then become the backup :) just kidding, but the 55-01's I've heard have been VERY impressive!
     
  3. Ibanez ATK.. it was designed to be a stingray clone( soundwise ), but it does stingray + a lot more !

    This is a good suggestion (those are fine basses), but I've heard that they are close to impossible to get in the US nowadays?
     
  5. hmm.. good call..
     
  6. I believe the TB user campiegirl has a "USATK" so to speak. See if it's still here.
