    Can anyone recemend a 5 string that in the used market can be had for about $300 that I can drop Sadowsky electronics into? In case you're wondering, I'm legally blind and can't notice small manufacturing defects. Its all about sound and feel.

    If you can stretch a bit more, to around $500, a used Lakland Skyline 55-01 is a really good bass.

    Well, I surely do enjoy mine!

    will the sadowsky electronics dro right in? I had a 44-02. Sold it because it sounded too much like my Lull.

    I'm legally blind as well, and a bass that looks great is a big thing for me :D I just can't see it from more than a few feet away :p

    I'd recommend a Fernandes. Here is one: http://cgi.ebay.com/Fernandes-Tremo...45?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Guitar&hash=item35a038efc5

    I have the 4-string version. Mine is very well built, light with a surprisingly loud & good sounding pickup. The neck, fretwork, etc. are also very good, perhaps I was just lucky. The cavity is shielded and there's ample space to drop the Sadowsky electronics and a battery. You're just gonna have to drill a few holes.

    Another one with dual pickups: http://cgi.ebay.com/Fernandes-Tremo...07?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Guitar&hash=item27acc972bf

    Three others: http://catalog.ebay.com/Fernandes-G...refkw=fernandes+gravity&_trksid=p3286.c0.m504

    Do you want to install pickups and preamp or just the preamp?
