I'm considering moving up in the world basswise and I would like to get a new bass. Hopefully (nearly definitely as I am a hard working little boy in my exams ) my parents will put some money towards me getting a new bass. At the moment, I play Jazz (in a big band), some fusion (on my own ), some classic rock (in a bar band) and some fusion/funk. I also do quite a lot of tapping and slapping I would like to get a 5 string bass, as I want to explore the lower registers of t'instrument. I like average string spacing (not too wide, not too tight) and I would like something in the 21-24 fret range. Can you guys recommend me a 5 string (fretted) that fills these criteria that is verssatile enough too? My price range is around £700, which according to my computer is $1000 (roughly). Any help? EDIT- Forgot to mention that I'm looking at a Lakland 55-01 right now, and I quite like it. Anything better in my price range?
