    I've had my eyes on an STR Sierra LS-5 for a while now, but I'm looking to get more information before I pull the trigger (I'm picky when it comes to 5ers thanks to below-average sized hands). For those who own one of these beauties:

    -How does the bass balance? Any issues with neck dive?
    -How about neck width and comfort? Are we talking Ibanez-thin, 5 string Fender-chunky, somewhere in between? I've found some specs online that have given me a rough idea of what to expect, but I'd love to hear some firsthand opinions.

    Relatively new to the site, apologies if there is a more appropriate place to post this.

    TL;DR: Convince me to stop being a wimp and buy an STR Sierra.

    The Sierra is the most wonderful versatile bass for that price range, it really unbelievable and perfectly built

    Thanks guys! I went ahead and ordered a Muck, but the Sierra is definitely on my "Acquire Eventually" list.
