    I wanted to know what the best five string with the best sounding B string for around $500 was.
  2. MTD Kingston 5, do not pass go, do not collect $200.

    I Agree! "End of story!"
  4. Spector NS2000 Q5. I've never heard a bad thing about it.
  5. I own an Ibanez BTB405 that has a nice "B". I've played it with the original strings, also D'Addario Chrome flats and Thomastik-Infeld Jazz flats. The TI flatwound strings have given me the best "B" though. I've also played an MTD Kingston that had a great "B". Both the BTB405 and the MTD Kingston sell for around US$599.00, but can be had for less at occasional special sale prices.

    MTD Kingston 5 or Fender Standard Jazz Bass V. Both have great B strings!
