My trusty Ibanez Sr505 poopie the bed on me earlier this week. The bands I'm gigging with currently all require 5 strings, and this was my only 5'er :'( Obviously I'll be repairing the Ibby, but it's become apparent that I need a backup. I'm borrowing a friend's bass for the weekend, but it's very temporary and definitely not for sale. Here's my criteria: Must have 5 strings Sub - $700 including case Prefer active pups Prefer longer scale length Prefer wide string spacing Brand doesn't matter CAN NOT HAVE BLACK PAINT! NO HIGH-GLOSS CLEARCOAT! Used or New - doesn't matter as long as it's readily available Of course I have my eye on a few models already that meet these criteria, but perhaps the TB Hivemind knows of some options that I'm not considering!
