I'm in the market for a 5 strictly for a back up bass. I was at G.C. yesterday and I was playing five strings through an ampeg 8x10 stack with the ampeg tube head. I played the precision fivestring, an ibanez five string, a squier five and an active fender jazz five and I've decided i'm not a fan of the B string. I use to own a six string Ibanez but I guess I just got use to E being my lowest string. However, I do miss the C string especially when soloing! I basically just typed this nonsense for nothing so just show me the pictures already!
