Hi, So I’m thinking of picking up my first 5 string after always playing 4s. After several recommendations and advice I’ve settled on a Sire V7. They’re exceptionally well priced and look incredible and I don’t want to spend a fortune until I know that I enjoy playing 5 string- the ultimate goal if I do will be purchasing a Spector Euro 5LX but not just yet! I know the fundemenal differences between the vintage and standard models, in terms of the physical differences but I’m not sure how that affects tone, feel etc. Does anyone have experience with these and could give me their opinions? My first decision is whether to go with the vintage or standard? My second decision is whether to go swamp ash with maple neck OR Alder with Rosewood neck? If anyone could explain how these choices would affect the play, tone, sound etc that would be great. Thank you.
