    I've worked up about $550 (slowly earning more) and I'm definitely wanting a 5 string. The tone I like is really punchy and agressive. Ex- the bass line playing on www.access-bass.com is the general sound I'm going for. A few basses I've been looking at are Conklin GT, Rockbass, MTD Kingston, Lakland Skyline and others I can't remember. I haven't heard all of them and I know some I'd have to save more money. Please don't flame me for having another 'what should I get' post. I'm just looking for some help from true bassists.

    Go ahead. Pick up the phone. Make things easy on yourself. Avoid being flamed. "Hire" a consultant who has owned many basses--in the last 24 hours!

    I think his name is Adrian or something like that.:D

    I can't decide whether or not this is worse than being flamed. By the way I did know Adrian was a member here, I just said I liked the bass sound on the page. Hey Adrian, what bass is that anyway:D
