I've ordered and sent back 2 BTB 405's from AMS because they both have lousy electronics (the tone and intensity fluctuate when I play an open E...you can even see the signal light on the amp go on, then off, then on...). I'm sure that many of them are fine, but I'm not comfortable putting it in the apparrently inept hands of the Ibanez quality control. But anyway, I'd like opinions on a good 5 string. I'm lookin for one with a 35" neck and string spacing thats at least wider than am Ibanez Soundgear (my older 5 string I want to replace) cause I sure love that funk, but I need the B so I can play covers and originals and not switch basses. I'm kinda looking at some Spectors (they look GREAT, but I haven't played one yet). I'm not lookin to spend a whole lot more than $1000, so any help would be great.
