  1. Hi all, I am thinking of taking the plunge and buying a five string, any one had experience with Yamaha Attitude Standards? I found this one on Ebay and am very tempted!!!

    The link doesn't work. The new Yamaha basses area really nice. The entire BB line is killer, and the fives are really well made and sound great.
     
  3. link fixed. Yeah, I've got one of the original Japanese BB's and it is still my main bass after 17 years! Just never been tempted to take the step to a 5 until now!

    The attitude standard 4s were really good for the money ... not sure about the 5, but if its a good price I wouldn't hesitiate. I'm not sure what else you can get for $500 AU ... I think not much due to the exchange rate right?

    That bartolini pickup is a significant upgrade.
