I'm looking for my first 5-string bass. My main bass is a Yamaha Attitude (4-string) so my P-bass sound is covered. I prefer Jazz shape and neck playability. A friend of mine picked up a new Fender Precision Standard MIM last month and it was really good for the price, to the point where I'm looking to buy a new Fender Jazz Standard V MIM. I saw mixed reviews on older MIM but new ones seem to be really good. I have no money for a USA model, so I'm eyeing a MIM and upgrade pickguard, bridge, pups and add a preamp in the future if I need to (maybe what I would do on a USA anyway). There's not a lot of new 5-string basses where I live and the used market is almost unexistant. This will not be my main bass but an entry to the 5-string world. I will sell my 1979 BC Rich Mockingbird to finance a better 5 string in the future or maybe a modern 6 string.
