    I've got GBP 350-400 to spend on a new 5-string. I'm looking for one with active eq, tight string spacing and quite light (I like to be able to move around easly on stage). It has to be quite a common make in the UK as we are touring soon and i wanna be able to get it repaired easly (if i run into any problems).

    At the moment the following has caught my eye:

    Ibanez SR405 or better
    Yamaha RBX765
    Dean Edge Q5

    Any ideas....

    I play a Cirrus 5, which I (and many others) love. You might be able to find one used for your price point. I've owned and played a few different Deans, all of which are very high quality for the price. The low B of the Dean is really quite good and represents one of the best values for a new bass.
