A couple of years back, I purchased a used GT5 (natural)for about $600 post tax. I really dug it! Okay...that's putting it mildly. I FRIGGIN LOVED IT!!! I loved it so much that my girlfriend waited untill I left town for a few weeks and she pawned it for $150! She admitted to being threatned by by new love because of the amount of time we shared and the way I just carried on about my GT5. My problem is that I either 1) Find another used GT(5 I don't have the balls or skill for a 7) 2) find a used bass that is comperable in sound, price and feel Any suggestions? Oh yeah...the only real problem that I had with the gt5 is that I just couldn't get used to the close spacing @ the saddle. Due to my inexperience with 5 stringers, is that spacing common?
