I should start by saying I'm left handed. Basically this is my first bass, but I've been playing guitar for 11 years. I want a 5 string because I main a 7 string guitar, so I will need the low B for recording and such. I want something that will be good for slap, progressive, blues, Primus, death metal, etc. Currently I'm torn between an Ibanez SR505 and a Schecter Stiletto Studio 5. My guitar is a Carvin DC727 and want a "bass equivalent" in terms of versatility and comfort (without spending trillions of dollars on an Icon). Any suggestions welcome.
