Well, I did it. I bought another 5-string. A lot of you will probably think I screwed up, but after looking around some more, I bought a new, 2005 Squier P-Bass Special V. If I like playing a 5-string again, and it works out for me, well, I'll keep this one as a back-up and go looking for a better quality instrument. I was really surprised at just how well this thing played, sounded, and looked, though. But, I used to own a Squier Affinity that was a surprisingly good bass, not just for the money, but just simply as a bass, so maybe I shouldn't have been. I got a lot of good recommendations on my other thread when I asked about 5-stringers with 3/4" spacing. I'm still looking through those and doing further research. I'm considering Lakland, Fender RB-5, and a couple others. A good friend of mine has a Carvin that he really loves, but it's a little narrower than I like. However, I found out that Carvin will make you one with 3/4" spacing. No one mentioned them, however. But, for the moment, I think this Squier will enable me to decide whether or not I'm going to seriously play a 5-string again.
