    I am looking to buy a 5 - string bass. I play different styles of music from rock to jazz to different latin and afro-cuban rythyms. I am willing to spend up to $950. Any recommendations on what type to buy? I own a Japanese 4-string Fender Jazz bass, almost 20 yrs. old. I would appreciate your input.
