I'm looking for an inexpensive 5 string so I've been perusing the ads. It seems like every ad has something along the lines of, "This is the best bass I've ever played." It makes me wonder why so many people are practically giving away these basses that are so good they sound like angels singing when you play them. Just once I'd like to see an ad like, "I hate this bass and I curse the day I bought it. I got screwed and I'm trying to pass that screwing on to you. It sounds like crap, looks like it was run over by an 18 wheeler, strings are 3" off the neck, can't be set up right, yet I'm still asking top dollar!" Just grousing.
