Name them all..(non warwick) it's researching time.
Elrick Gold Standard 5.
This should actually be listed under "Incredible 5 Strings."
Dingwall Afterburner 5
Dingwall Prima 5
Dingwall Zebra 5
I like my 5 string, Godin BG5
Music Man StingRay 5.
Schecter Stilleto Elite 5. Its not an ultra high-end bass, but I love it and it is loaded for the money (EMG's, gold hardware, active pick-ups, neck-through, amazing quilted top, S-tek bridge).
Sadowsky 24 fret 5
Sadowsky Vintage 5
Sadowsky Standard 5
I suggest my honest and reliable G&L L-2500...
A lot depends upon the music you play, of course. I'm also looking now for a 5 and have been very impressed with Alembic basses. Good, clean sound, nice B string. My favorite that I've played and am now looking for is a Rogue 5 (pre-owned).
Modulus Quantum 5...mine is the best sounding bass I've ever owned, bar none. Of course, this is just my opinion. The graphite is what I love about it. YMMV...
all very good and very different. The list is endless. Perhaps you can narrow the search down a bit by giving us some info on price range, music style, preferences etc?
Here's one long page of manufacturers...
Dude those elrick basses were the ugliest things i've ever seen. Anyways heres my musical taste. Bands like, Metallica, Slayer, Sabbath, Pantera, Dreamtheater, etc(i hate system of a down)
Hmm. Sorry, haven't a clue what's good for that music.
Modulus and Zon come to mind for a contemporary kind of vibe.
Sadowsky jazz basses seem to be the bomb for the traditional jazz tone. Although, would say that a Pedulla Rapture J2 is a decently close second for a lot less money.
The MTDs that I have played have been very nice.
Depends on what you want and the kind of loot you want to drop.
For the music you mentioned, I wouldn't worry about it too much as along as it is pointy.
Fender Roscoe Beck 5 String. Get one, have it set up professionally, and you'll have one of the best passive 5's out there.
