Ok, so my Spector had a string break the other day mid-set. It wasn't a huge deal, as I wasn't using that string for the rest of the set. It did get me thinking about having a back-up. I have a P-bass that doesn't get much use, but I'm always uncomfortable with restringing it BEAD, as I lose the G to gain the B. Another option would be to pick up a backup 5 string. I want something that's going to sound similar to my Spector Rebop 5DLX (tone controls rolled all off) I'm currently looking at the following basses: Squier Vintage Modified Jass Bass V - $350 +12% tax Peavey Grind 5 NTB - $550 after Tax Cort T5 - $360 +12% tax Any suggestions (either the above or other). The music stores in my area are: Long & McQuade Tom Lee Music (Fender, ESP & others) Arbutus Music (Cort & G&L dealer) I want to get something in Canada, as I don't want to have to pay duty, and I'd like to do it locally, as I don't have a credit card.
