GAS has settled in and I've been jonesin' for a 5-string. I want a 5-string mainly so I can start playin some heavy down tuned metal. Typically I love Fender style basses so I've looked into the RB5, but the 34" scale kinda scares me away. I know I could go for a Lakland or some other Fenderesque bass but I'm not crazy about their 5 string headstocks (love the 4s though) Anyway I got to looking into some more "metal" basses and thats when I found those Dingwall Afterburner I's. I hear that Dingwalls are awesome, they look great, could definatly hold up with the metal look. Any other suggestions for a good 5 string that can handle down tuned metal jams thats somewhere around $1000 US?
