Just wondering what you all think of this bass. I went and test-drove one today; I've never played a 5 before, and sort of fumbled with the B string, but for the music I play the extra range would be very handy. But since it was my first encounter with a 5-er, I was wondering what you more experienced people thought about it. It's a couple years old, when they had the EMG electronics (SD Basslines now), with all Schaller hardware. The cool thing is that it's brand new, with hardshell case, for $800 (retail $1280). The music store has just had it sitting there for a long time. BTW, the strings were two years old too, so I can't really judge the tonal qualities. The only bad thing on it, as far as I could tell, is the concentric bass/treble knobs are sort of sticky. Not scratchy mind you (not noisy at all), but when you turn one of them, the other might turn, too. Their movement isn't always independent (not without one hand holding one, while the other turns the other knob). Anyway, thanks for the input, I don't want to botch a purchase.
