    I will buy my first 5 string.i want smth a little affordable.but not a toy.
    - 5 strings
    - 24 fret
    - active-passive switch
    - ultra slim neck
    - bolt on construction
    - not a wide neck (dont like yamaha - fender wide necks)
    - i like a pickguard under my fingers
    - weighs NOT heavy

    Is it too mucn to ask ?

    Well, till you said Pickguard, I would have said Dingwall Afterburner II or perhaps a Z2. Neither however have pickguards.

    I read somewhere that the Peavey Millenium USA model will be made available soon. It meets all your criteria and kicks ass!

    I wouldn't mind suggesting something if you could define affordable, affordable to me might be $1000 but to you it might only be $500 or it might even be $3000
