Greetings TB'ers, I'm looking for a 5-string bass. I already have a Modulus Flea 5, which is pretty versatile, NEVER goes out of tune, and has been extremely reliable (I'm knocking wood right now). I gig pretty regularly and feel it's a good idea to have a back-up. (Plus I've got a little GAS, imagine that!!!) With that in mind, I'm thinking a more vintage sounding bass would be a nice complement to the Mod. I play mostly classic rock, through a GB Streamliner 900 and a pair of Avatar Neo 210's. I'm committed to 5-strings, and am looking at the Lakland Skyline series (the P or J models). I'm also looking at used Sadowsky Metro basses, but they are likely way out of my price range unless the deal of the century falls into my lap, and now I just thought that the Carvin SB5000's might be interesting. Based on the Lakland and Carvin price points, you pretty much know my budget. The hard part is that I know I need to play these to make my own judgment, but I'll never have the opportunity to compare these head to head at once. Any thoughts on the pros and cons of each? Any other makers I should consider. Thanks all.
