Hi all, I need a 5-string P-bass. It has to nail the P-bass sound "exactly", or at least be so close that for all practical purposes it's indistinguishable from the real (4-string) thing. I keep hearing about the Benavente 51 in this context, and my question is, to those of you who own one, how close does it really come to nailing the P-bass sound? Does it have a passive mode, or is the active preamp on all the time? And, in terms of tonal capability above and beyond the vintage P-bass sound, can I get any modern sounds out of it too, like is it any good for slapping? And if I were to get one, what would be the good wood combination? I'm strongly inclined towards a maple fingerboard, and what about the body? Are there any other options that I need to consider (or should consider)? Is there anywhere in the Los Angeles area I can get my hands on one so I can listen to it and play it for a while?
