    Deciding between a five string fender jazz bass Or the schecter c5 apocalypse. We play heavy tunes in the vein of Deftones..my question is which would hold the drop a tuning better with less flab? And any other constructive I sight would be appreciated. Thank you talk bassss!

    Of those two, the schecter. Most any 35" scale will suffice, however.

    Schecter is longer than the fender? Someone told me fender jazz was"short scale"

    Schecter is definitely a good choice for that. the stiletto basses are also good for drop a tunings. especially a flat tunings. just make sure you have heavy gauge strings for that.
