I m looking for a new 5 string, I would like to stay under $1500 and that can hopefully fulfill most of these requirements. 1. Have a big B 2. Be able to cut through the mix 3. Solid construction were I can really did into 4. Good and tight string tension 5. Generous string space 6. Fast action w/ good articulation I currently have a Yamaha RBX765A which has a great feel, but it picks up a lot of fret noise and the B string is way too weak. Of course when it comes time to buy I will play as many basses as possible, Im just trying to narrow down the search.
