I am interested in trying out 5 strings. I have never played them before and I am considering either purchasing a USED Peavey Foundation or spending a little bit more and maybe getting a tribute L2500. I just want to practice with these and see if I like the "5"...but that doesnt mean that I dont want the bass to sound good. I played the Peavey and sounded okay, seemed like someone shimmed the neck and had pretty narrow string spacing (I compared it to a spector they had lying around) Havent played a L2500 people here seemed to like it. What do you guys think? Any other suggestions? Comments? Thanks to those who can reply. Much appreciated.
