Hi, new TB member here. A fairly novice player, I currently own an Epiphone Standard IV (I love the long scale and great balance, if a little heavy and lacking in punch). I have been offered a 2007 Made-in-Mexico Fender Jazz V for a very low price, and wanted some advice on whether it is worth considering it as a first five-string bass? I've read comments that these suffer from an under-performing B string, so want to ask if anyone here knows how bad this problem really is, and if there is any case in which you would recommend one, or should I stick with my Epiphone for now. Of course, if they can be easily modded to sound better, any advice there would be appreciated too! Thanks.
