As I've gotten back into playing now that my hand pain is under control, I've been spinning off most of my remaining four stringers. One hole in my bass arsenal is a passive five string. I prefer single HB basses (witness my Bongo 5H, SR5 and Sterling); all of these are active. I've always liked the PBass sound but have never owned one - the closest I've come is a G&L L-1000 parts bass. Are there any good reasons I wouldn't want to pick up a new American Standard Precision V, budget allowing?
