What is the difference between a studio bass and others?
and
Why do some artists use on bass in the studio and different one on the road?

I can only answer the second

If you think about it, would you bring your best stuff (or at least things that may have a strong personal value) along with you on tour where its bound to be dinged up or even possibly lost or stolen?

1. Generally, a companies "studio" series is nicer and more expensive than the others. As Thegian said, you don't want to bring your best bass on the road with you where many bad things can happen to it. The exception to this rule is Gibson, whose studio instruments are actually cheaper

2. Adding on to what Thegian said, a good studio bass will sound GREAT and probably have playability to match. With a good tour bass, an amazing tone will probably be lost on an audiance anyway, so only having a good or even decent tone but great looks, reliability, durability, balance and a lower price tag is better in a live bass IMO

stage bass- should achieve a sound that is the sum of all your studio tones. should be cheaper, and look cool onstage.

studio bass- achieves the perfect tone for the song.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

A studio bass is going to have more specific and expensive features to suit a song. A bass you play at a gig is going to be cheaper because it ends up covered in sweat, stolen, and/or beat up.
