    When asking for advise on basses it's always good to give a price range and musical style..one thing that remains constant though:
    Except for illness or financial strain, people sell basses becaust they: think they found something better
    the bass did not meet expectations
    their needs changed/bass not versatile enough
    are addicted to buying new gear

  5. My new Stingray 5'er. Vintage and Modern tone in one awesome package. Very comfy too. Thanks Melvin7822!!! :bassist: :hyper:

    The other on was my old Peavey Cirrus 5 w/a Redwood top. This bass was absolutely fabulous. It played like a boutique bass, but at like half the price. I had to get rid of it cause the 35" scale was hurting my hand. Man, I wish I could've kept it

    I'm getting ready to take the six string plunge myself, so here's two of my 5ers that I have listed for trade on the 'for sale' forum.
