After posting about whether to get a 5 string or not, and every one saying that I should, I decided to head on down to my local guitar shop and try one out. They only had one, an Ernie Ball Music Man. It felt nice, but was priced at around £1100 (I think about US$2000) well out of my price range, which is up to £500 (around US$850). I was looking on the Internet to get some ideas when I came across the 5 string Fender Jazz Bass. Undoubtedly a nice looking bass, also very famous and all that. It was priced around £400 I think (around US$625). Does anyone own a jazz bass? Is it worth checking one out? What kind of sounds does it give? Once again, the talkbass forums have been more then useful. Thanks to everyone - click an ad.
