    I just joined talkbass after using it for a tab archive for about 6 months. I've been playing for a bit over 2 years and I love my BG Godin. I am planning on getting a new bass and some of those 5 stringed basses look nice.
    What do you think I should get. A BG-5 or an Ibanez SoundGear (both are 5 strings)?
  2. A Sadowsky Vintage P/J 5-string.......you couldn't ask for a better bass!

    soundgears never come out right. but a BTB is pretty good.

    my crudentials for a 5er

    35 inches
    active/passive pups
    has to have active EQ
    would love a neck-thru

    pretty much a BONGO would cut it. or a sting5

    maybe that will help?

    Both were helpful. If soundgears never come out right then I would probably go with the BTBs.
