Ok, I'm in a band and for some reason the guitarist likes to tune down to C. It drives me crazy 'cause my bass sounds really poopy tuned that low, I'v tried to tell him to tune back up. I've said "It's an E string, not a C string" but everyone knows how stuborn guitarists are. So I've decided to get a 5 string. I want one with a good rock tone, perferably tight string spacing, don't care if it is active or not, and it needs to be around $500-$1000. I play through a Peavy Firebass and a 15" Bag End cab. Any suggestions, I'm willing to look for a used one too.
