    Fresh off a semi-recent, big deal purchase of a US 62'RI Precision, I started to get that sinking feeling that I hadn't yet spent enough money supplementing my talent and felt the need to justify a need for a 5 string (again).

    I've owned a bunch of 5 'ers. A Spector Legend, G&L L2500 and some random black Ibanez to name a few, but could never justify keeping one in the arsenal. Well, that didn't last long. Like a bad, bad, man...I just spent a good chunk of a $500 bonus on another one. Someone stop me. The money could have been used better but I made myself feel better by swearing my next bonus would be used for more...um...better means or something.

    I went and got this:

    Didn't (and couldn't) spend a fortune and compared to all the others in it's price range, it seemed the most appealing. Guess I'll have to get over the Squier snobbery? :bag:

    If it works for you, that's all that matters. I played one of those a few months back and was surprised how well it played.

    Congrats!

    That one's good.
    I ain't got it yet, and, me too, I'm not that into 5er anymore... But, as no MIM standard Jazz V seems to have met our shores if I'll ever get a 5er again, chances are it's gonna be that one, or 3TS active deluxe (basswood body) I happened to try out one day and appreciated pricewise overall quality/personality.

    Good job man!
