Ok so my 18th birthday is aproaching and Im getting a 5 string base for no more than 400 euros. For now Im choosing from one of theese: http://www.thomann.de/gb/ibanez_sr305ipt.htm http://www.thomann.de/gb/jackson_js3v_concert_qs.htm http://www.thomann.de/gb/yamaha_rbx_375_fsl_slv.htm http://www.thomann.de/gb/esp_ltd_f105_bk.htm http://www.thomann.de/gb/traben_array_5_bks.htm For now the yamahha and esp seem like the best sounding but I don't know if I should trust the sound samples on the site. The traben looks rly sick as well. Im open to new ideas as well ofcourse. I live in europe so shiping from america will cost too much. Also is it safe to buy the bass from Thoman.de(I mean could there be problems with shiping or defective stuf?) cuz I cant find those bases in any guitar stores.
