  1. Todays my b-day guys. I'm looking at 5-string basses, any suggestions?

    -(edit) style of music-metal, hard rock.

    What kind of price range do you have?

    If you can spare $800-900 I'd look at a used Ernie Ball Stingray 5 or American Deluxe Fender Precision Bass.

    Happy Birthday Dude.
     
  3. As of right now, im looking at all price-ranges but i doubt its going to be over a 1000$. Right now i have a Fender Precision 1972. I looked at the Stingrays 5, but its pricy.

    Definitely look at the Lakland Skylines - possibly the Joe Osborn 5 or a 55-02. GREAT tone, I love my 55-94, which is pretty much the same bass as the 55-02, just Made in America. The Osborn is really popular with Fender Jazz guys.
