First of all, I am searching for 5'ers online, so I actually haven't tried out any of these basses. My search for a comfortable 5'er is rooted in finding the dimensions of certain basses, and comparing them to basses I have played. My search for a 5 string bass has come to halt twice after I had to pass on a Lakland 55-01 because the string spacing was too much, and I had to pass on a Schecter Diamond Elite 5 because the string spacing was too little. Neither of these basses fit my ideal criteria, but they both came pretty close. Here is my ideal find (but I don't expect to find it and would be appreciative of suggestions that meet most of this criteria instead): -5 strings -35" scale -String spacing of about a Stingray 5 or Peavey Cirrus -Under $800 -Neck-thru -Bartolini soapbars -Active electronics (preferably 3-band) -Sound wanted: something with a phat sound, I'm getting a KSD proto-j 70's 4 for the slap stuff, I want something really bassy. One of the basses that has come to my attention is the Ibanez SR905. Does it meet the above critera (especially string spacing)?
