well I never thought I'd like a 5 string bass, but I just played a stingray 5 at guitar center and I actually loved it. I'm thinking of buying it, but I have a few questions. If I buy the bass, should I ask for them to get one from the back? If I buy the bass that's hanging on the wall, isn't it considered a demo bass and shouldn't it be cheaper to buy? What do you guys do when you buy a bass at a store? Do you ask for one that's in the back or just buy the one off the wall. If you buy it off the wall do you ask for a cheaper price because it's a demo bass? One of the main reasons I'm thinking of going with guitar center is that I'll most likely qualify for the 15 months financing deal. If I had the money I'd probably buy a used one for cheaper.
