    Hey I am going to collage for bass guitar and I am looking for a good 5 string that wont break the bank. I am sick and tired of looking at the same companies. Any suggestions of any companies that have a good 5 string, it can be really anything active/passive 35/34 scale. I don't really care. I am just trying to find a bass that would suit me best in collage.

    I thought he meant he was making artwork to exchange for a bass, like knitting someone a hat for a free meal or something.

    And while we're at it, Im sick of things being the same. It makes me ill when this is no difference.
    And I feel under the weather when it's common too.

    I need a hug.

    Do you mean.. College?

    It is not possible to determine any sort of "redundancy" without knowing what you have been looking at. Without knowing what you have actually been looking at the vast majority of suggestions from this board will, in fact, result in, you got it.. Redundancy..

    I could go on but that would again be, redundant..

    How about a Spector?

    I suggest more attention to understanding the difference between words like "college" and "collage", and less to bass playing. Otherwise the college career may be brief.

    Redundant. I do not think that word means what you think it means.

    If you want recommendation for *other* companies, you need to tell us who the "same companies" are. Also, it take different amounts to break the bank for different people.

    Schecter Diamond P Custom 5. It has a P-Bass pickup and a Jazz bass humbucker that can be turned to a single coil with the twist of a knob. Tons of tone options, great looking bass, and you can probably find one for around $300.

    Warwick would be perfect but kind of pricey. You could probably find a dirt cheap warwick corvette that would work great

    Sorry guys I posted that in a hurry, sorry that I wasn't clear in the description. I have looked at fender, esp, warwick, schecter,dean, warmoth,fodera, and rybski. I am willing to spend around 3,000 for it. The collage that I will be attending is Atlanta's Institute of Music for their bass guitar program.
