    Hey guys, I've recently purchased a Musicman Stingray 4 classic in November of 2012 and shortly after my purchase I've been wishing I got a 5 string instead.
    Any suggestions on what basses I should be looking at?
    I primarily play for church in worship music so I'm looking for a lot of warmth up top but at the same time a nice punch on the bottom.
    I play out of an Eden 300CXC hybrid amp.
  2. You may want to look at the squire vm precision bass 5. I don't play a 5, and I also play at church, but the vm series basses as well as the cv are really nice and reasonably priced.
  3. Price range?

    I was thinking more of trading my stingray for one.
    Obviously that'll be determined by the agreement between myself and the other party, but I was wondering if there were any suggestions within the stingray budget

    If you like the MM...go for a MM5.

    also, look at the Lakland 55-01 and 55-02 series basses....the 55-02 has ALOT of variability and can be used for many different sounds....many praise band players who use it love it.

    I had a 55-02 and only got rid of it because I purchased a US version.

    also - a nice Precision 5er (like the Lakland skyline 55-64) may do the trick,....

    good luck!

    One of the Laklands mentioned should help you dial in what you need. 5502 or 5564, 5560 might be perfect and I really like passive for praise. Worth checking out and should be within reach with the Ray in hand.
