Well, I gave a five-stringer a try, but sadly, it's not the bass for me.
Looks like I'll be a dedicated four-stringer kinda guy for the foreseeable future. 2009 Squier Deluxe Jazz Active V in the discontinued white color
More pics later…
It's in fantastic shape! It's completely stock, save for the brand-new strings (Ernie Ball Cobalts) and mercifully free of dings and marks you'd expect for a four-year-old bass (you have to angle the light just right
to see any scuffing). Here's the specs at the Fender/Squier page. I'm asking for $275, which includes;
1. Shipping and tracking for the Lower 48. Further out will cost more.
2. A pair of unused "Low B" strings, a D'Addario .125 nickel round-wound and .132 chrome flat-wound. All you have to do is pair them up with a standard four-stringer set and viola! For an additional $50 I'll throw in a brand new (still has the tag on it) Roadrunner Polyfoam Bass Case, which will be especially useful during transport.
It's a great bass and I want it to find a good home with someone who can put it to better use than I can.
