Hey all! New to the forums here, figured it was about time to join, considering this is the place I check most for almost any question I've ever had concerning our wonderful instrument. But, a new question has arisen that i can't seem to find an answer to. I have owned my Ibanez Btb 5-er (korean made, unsure of model) for almost 5 years, and it's time for something new, and let me say, i want something completely different. The bass i have in mind is one of those shiny new Stingray 5's, but on a cook's salary, that is just not going to happen... And I've looked into the sterling's as well, but again, a bit too expensive, and i need something soon. The poor ibby is in rough shape. The question is, besides the ATK, (which i can't find any of the 305's used online) what stingray "alternative's" are available. Any help is very appreciated.
