Hi, If you could choose only one of this basses, which one would be the winner (or if you have any other suggestions... they really are more than welcome ). My choices are so restrict because I am in search for a 5 string and, mainly because I live in Portugal where we do not have acess to basses like MTD, Fodera, Roscoe (I know all this basses are way better than the ones in the poll!!). I really do not want to (understand... can't) spend more than 1000 to 1400 - more or less the same in USD. I think string spacing is a issue because my Cort Artisan has a very tight string spacing and I really would want something wider (so I can slap as well!). My main styles are blues, jazz and funk. I really would appreciate some help here, as I am begining to feel lost!! Thank for everything!!!
