I was kind of toying with the idea of getting a Carvin body and neck and building my own bass from sratch. I LOVE the MM sound, but I can't afford a "real" StingRay. So I'm looking for whatever comes closest to replicating that sound. If you're going to say something to the effect of "if you want a musicman sound, you have to buy a musicman" don't respond. I know it's probably true, but I don't want to hear it. It also has to be available in a five string version, too.
