  1. Hi Guys,
    Just wanted some advice on my next bass purchase. I'm planning on spending around £700, and it would be a five string. Some basses I've already seen online that look the biz are:
    *Cort A5
    *Lakland 55-01
    *G&L Tribute L2000
    Cheers,
    Ryan. :confused:

    I was up in London a few weeks back, and I got to try out a used Bass Centre Stadium 5 string, which is essentially a rebadged MTD Grendel. I can't remember the exact price, but I think it was around your budget, maybe £599. Anyway, it was a great bass, with a very good B string. It was at the Bass Gallery in Camden. I think they also had a few at the Bass Centre in London as well.

    The most versatile of your examples is the G&L.

    Love that preamp.
