Okay, so right now I have a Peavey Cirrus 5 fretless. On order is a Rob Allen MB-2 5-string fretless. I didn't particularly need the new bass - I have no complaints about the Cirrus. It's just that the Rob Allen is soooo sweet. So why should I keep my Cirrus? Would there be some advantage to maybe keeping it around tuned EADGC, or maybe having nickel-roundwounds on it (vice LaBella 760n on the RA) to offer some tonal variation? Is there a different way a bass should be set up to be more slap-oriented (I have virtually no slapping skill)? Your opinions are welcome. What would you do? I don't really need the money from selling the Cirrus, so the only reasons to part with it would be: it is totally redundant I have a close friend who could use a bass. I would like him to have it.
