    I have the chance to buy a used (but supposedly in "excellent" condition) Samick 5-string. It is $170(US) or best offer. I was just wondering if this is a good investment. I have a 4-string now, and wouldn't mind having a 5, but it's definitely not necessary. I will only buy it if this is a really good deal. Thanks.

    Your Curbow is far and away better. Save the dough for a better amp. That's my advice. Samick isn't what your would call prime real estate. If it's not nessicary, don't do it, unless you know you can sell it back to someone for more than $170, other than that, steer clear my friend.

    Thank you, that's exactly what I (and my wallet) needed to hear. ;)
