    I would like to get another 5 string that has the same feel because I don't like big or thick necks.

    A good choice for a versatile 5 string similar to the SR5 but not as expensive would be a___________________________.

    You fill in the blank Thanks

    Ibanez have quite thin necks, are quite affordable and some of them have nice versatile pre amps.

    Do you want it the same scale as your SR?

    Maybe a "Sterling by MM" is your answer?
    These look pretty much like the real deal.

    Ballymena (hey)
    s/h MM SUB 5?
    s/h bongo 5? (not everyone's cup of chai I'll admit, but I love mine - much lighter than any 'ray I've ever played)
    Aria STB5? Cheapo, but great basses for the money.

    The new "Sterling by Musicman" line should be out soon. I think they're calling this one a Ray35. It appears as this is the only color option though.

    MTD Kingston's have a great neck and a single bucker. Also, quite a bit cheaper, but IMO a great bass, is the TBC AP-500M.

    Maybe an ESP Ltd. Surveyor with dual EMG humbuckers. IMO it's more aggressive than the 'Ray, and sounds closer to a G&L with MFD's.

    I think the problem is that once you play a MM Stingray, you have a hard time going to something lesser built. The only drawback is that they are very heavy. I am always afraid that a thinner neck will cause problems with a 5 string.
