I have an opportunity to buy a pristine '96 Sterling at a good price. OR . . . I can hold off and get into a new 5-string Bongo or possibly a 5-string StingRay (although both look a little strange to me) If I go with the Sterling, I can pick up a decent used amp with the spare cash. On the other hand, I've heard the Sterling is a little weak on the low end, which concerns me. As a new player interested in Reggae, World Fusion, and Afro-Cuban, should I go with the Sterling as my first bass -- something to learn on -- or hold out for one of the 5-strings with their bigger tonal range?
