hey guys, I just wanted to thank everyone for their help. I'm mostly just a lurker around here contributing here in there but i was looking for a new five string. It came down to a MIA Precision Deluxe 5 and the Lakland JO5 Skyline series. I know they are a little different sound wise, but i'm confident about my choice, the Lakland JO5 Natural color with maple neck. Espically with the 35 inch neck for the B string. I also wanted to thank the guys a bass central for the awesome deal they gave me.I highly recommend these guys. Thanks to Beaver and Gard for all your help.
