    Yea i cant seem to find any Brice Basses that arnt 6 strings. Do they make 5 string versions of their 6 string models?

    Also do they have a proper website? I found one but it was useless. And rondo isnt displaying very many of them, It'd help alot more if they displayed them all and listed the ones they dont have as Out Of Stock, instead of them taking it off the website.

    any help would be great, thanks.

    Also Does anybody know of any good low or mid priced 5 strings? (other than SX or Ibanez)

    Peavey and Yamaha both make excellent mid-range 5 strings.

    I know I have seen a brice 8 string fretless on e-bay constantly being listed for real short money. I looked into these a little bit and found that they are made by the same company the makes some guitars for epiphone an peavey...but from what I read on reviews about them I guess their weak spot is the electronics ...fault pots etc....hope this helps....check out harmony-central for more info

    The Brice inventory at rondo is very fluid. Keep an eye out their basses change quite a bit. They have had lots of very nice five strings in the past.

    Rondo's bass page is http://www.rondomusic.net/bassguitars4.html . I do not know if they ship to Canada. The Douglas SB-35 SN Ash looks very nice to me.

    Another bass I would personally recommend in the price range is a Dean Edge. I used to own one (a five string fretleess) and it was a really great bass that I enjoyed a lot and got lots of use out of. A real sweet and pro quality instrument
