    Yes. I'm looking for a Rosce Beck 4 (I really do like the sound of the Bill Lawrence pups), or any other well made 4 string that has a modern yet vintage vibe/sound, along the lines of a Lakland, Sadowsky or older Fender. I'm willing to trade + cash for a real "player".

    I'm in search of THE ONE.

    What's the B string like? Anything like a MM SR5?

    I have no experience with 5's to answer you. This is the first 5 I ever played. I thought I could get into it, but, alas I'm a 4 stringer. I'm sure you can get an answer from another thread. Take care.

    It's a great sounding B. I liked it almost as much as the B on my Bongo. Very clear, powerful and 'jazz-y' for a 34" bass. You really cannot go wrong with an RBV.

    Just take note-this is a large bass. It's big.
  12. The B-String on the RBV's are great. I had an SR5 and RBV at the same time, and installed the same strings (elixir) and the RBV B string was tighter.

    Purchased in '04. I'm the 2nd owner.
    The girl I bought it from bought it somewhere in Los Angeles. Unfortch, I don't have her receipt, however she did give me the hangtag.
