I'm looking for a good fretted 5-string. I'd prefer a 34" scale bass, with a fairly flat neck, so it shouldn't feel like I'm holding a baseball bat. Neck width isn't too much of an issue I think. I'm not really a slapper btw, mostly play metal/rock. Price range? Up to about a 1000,- should be doable. May take me more time than I'd like to save that up, but I want a bass that will keep me satisfied for many years to come so I'm willing to spend some extra cash. Thnx in advance.
