Alright TB, come to my rescue here. I'm looking at pulling the trigger on a 5 string P in the next month or so. 2 contenders right now are the Fender american 5er, and the Lakland Skyline 55-64...but I'm open to other options(that GC carries for $$ reasons) if they're out there... Right now I'm playing my SR5 and I have been for almost 8 years now. She's my baby and I'll never get rid of her, I just think it's time I add a P to the mix. Currently running a Sunn 300t, SWR Megoliath, a Rat, Memory Boy & BBE Sonic Maximizer. I likes it dirty & loud. So...pros & cons on the basses I talked about? Build quality of the Skyline stuff vs the Fender? Price on the skyline is real nice, but one thing that scares me about the Lakland is the neck width @ the final fret...it's almost .75 inches wider than my SR5(what I'm used to). Is it going to kill me? It's also 35 inch scale, as listed on lakland's site. Do they make it in a 34?
