After trying many 5 string Bass of the past year I decided on a Stingray5 My wife is ordering it from Bass Central . I played many the one's that made the final cut where G&L L-2500 Close second but since I have a L-2000 I wanted some little different Peavey Cirrus Nice Bass but not me Peavy Millenuum Another nice one But could not find a 5 to try the 4 played nice though Peavey is making some nice stuff Spector Euro another very nice bass un fender like but I love the neck on the them build quality very nice. Fender Roscoe Beck 5 nice bass I thought build quality was a little spotty but a nice bass . Fender Jazz Deluxe 5 better then I thought it would be the pre-amp I thouht if was a little noisy But played nice The problem I found with the Fenders that the quality was not consistant some great and some where horrible some of that might be from the dealer poor set up . Warwick Thumb 5 Nice Bass B string a little Floppy Another Bass Just Not Me As I said Before I Came Close to the L-2500 It does have more sounds then Stingray But since I had the L-2000 already The Stingray won .
