After much debate over purchasing a 5-stringer, I could not pass up on an ebay item. It's a burnt apple SR5 w/rosewood. It arrived in case/excellent condition & it only cost me a tad over $800. Sounds great w/new Elixir Nanowebs. Excuse the bad pic quality & the cheesy web site: http://ducatimonster.homestead.com/bass.html The SR5 joins my SR4 & Sterling.
