I'm looking for a lefty 5 string bass since a couple of months, and i'm tired. I just can't find a model that i can afford (around 1000$). I went to music stores, look for an Ibanez, but the seller told me that none is abalaible lefty. An other told me i should look at yamaha, but no, i don't want yamaha. it tastes like crap. An other told me that a 5 string lefty is very rare and they can't have any. I looked on the internet for a model, i can't find one that i can afford. I went to the carvin website, though, (they ship the bass at home with fed-ex or stuff) and there is many i could afford, but in canadian dollar plus the shipping costs, plus the custom costs, plus the taxes, plus all that s*it, it costs about $2000... so, i'm exhausted. so, does anyone know a model i can afford?
