    Hey all,
    I am soon looking into getting into the world of the 5 string bass, With Christmas coming soon, I have decided that i want a new bass for christmas. There are 2 options for me at the moment... I can sell a few of my bass effects, which I dont use, to help pay for a half decent bass, or i can keep the pedals and get an OLP MM 5 string copy. Some of the higher priced basses that i have been looking at are the Spector NS2000/5, Schecter Stiletto Elite 5, or anything in the $300-450 range. I dont have a problem with buying used so i am open to that option as well. If a good deal on a Schecter came up, i would probably take it. So if anyone has one to sell me, drop me a message. Anyways, what are your guys/girls thoughts on these 3 basses? Which would you choose and why.

    Thanks,
    Phil Vriesinga
