Hi everybody. As maybe some of you know (or remember) I have a Carvin BB75 that I like so much, specially for its wide string spacing (perfect for a 5-string to me) and it sounds very nice IMO. As I said in a previous thread, I have no comparison points here because a high-end bass is really expensive and stores don't bring that kind of stuff here. Anyway, if there's a bass that I like so much (judging by recordings) is the MusicMan StingRay, but I've never thought of getting one, because they come with 21 or 22 fret necks, and a 24-fret neck is very important to me since I play lots of tapping stuff (specially Stuart Hamm's). Just for curiosity, I wrote to Ernie Ball asking if there's the possibility of a 24-fret StingRay and they told me "No, but our Bongo model comes with a 24 fret neck". Since that moment, I desperately want to get a Bongo HS 5 string, specially after reading reviews of it (StingRay on steroids), but I don't want to get rid of my Carvin. Besides, I want to have a neck-thru (the Carvin) and a bolt-on (Bongo) since after lots of playing I think they feel and play very different. My question is, how do you compare the sound of the Carvin with the Bongo? I mean, do you think it would be like "redundant" to have both basses? The thing is: I think the Bongo is something REALLY different to the Carvin, but maybe I'm wrong. Of course, getting a MusicMan is not a waste of money, but I don't want to invest in something that doesn't make a difference. Thank you in advance for your input.
