    Well it appears I have a serious case of GAS for a 5 string. I'd love to go high end like sadowsky, but I'm going to college next year and I gotta watch how to spend my money So I was wondering how you guys, and gals, feel about the Standard Fender Jazz V and the Deluxe Fender Jazz V. If theres anything else in that price range (about $600ish) Either new or used I'd really like the input, thanks in advance.

    Try the Lakland 55-01 or 55-02 they are in a good price range, the quality is the best. :D

    The low end Spector 5s are really sweet and start around $600 I belive.

    55-01, yes, 55-02, no... at least not unless he finds a GREAT used deal. Otherwise, I was about to mention Lakland until I saw this, so "+1". :)
