I just recently decided to order a bass from Upton to replace/complement my 10-yr old Engle. Gotta LONG wait before I get my new bass, but I was wondering what thoughts you might have on setting up 2 different basses. Bluegrass is my wheelhouse, but most of the jams and the group I play w/ are more general acoustic - with plenty of oldtime, C&W, Americana, folk... My Engle strung w/ Innovation Rockabillys fits the bill awfully well. I love how it plays, and I regularly get compliments on the sound. I'm working on playing more leads, up the neck, occasional slapping, and some bowing, just to be able to add the right touch to whatever I'm playing. I play NO jazz, and no classical other than rudimentary Suzuki-level exercises. The Innovations are really a challenge to bow. My initial thought was to replace them - likely w/ Evah weichs. That soon morphed into deciding to buy a hybrid. At first, I thought I would set them up similarly, and keep my plywood as a travel/festival beater. -Then I thought I'm likely to fall in love w/ my new bass, and could just as well sell the old Engle. (My wife was VERY supportive of my buying a 2d bass, but she was pretty firm that she would not get behind any 3d bass entering the house! ) -But just this morning, I thought I could use the opportunity to set the 2 basses up completely differently, to give me the most flexibility. What do you think of that? If you had a new hybrid and a solid plywood, would you set them up similarly so they would be as "interchangeable" as possible? Or would you set them up differently? If the latter, how would you set them up? I'm thinking of setting the new bass up as my generalist - a bluegrass thumping cannon that I can occasionally slap and bow. And I could go full-on traditional w/ the plywood, maybe with full guts... Just my initial thoughts. I've got NINE months in which to think about it!
