What Kind...

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by godsmack, Aug 10, 2001.


  1. I'm in the market for a 5 string bass soon... what kind do you all suggest? i've heard ibanez are pretty good because they have a thiner neck... is that true? well, i have about 300 to 500 $ so what's something pretty good?

    thanks for the help.

    If you want an Ibanez 5 string, check out the BTB series. And yes, Ibanez's do have thin necks.

    if you like heavy metal..you can get a jackson 5 string bass for around that price.I think jackson's are better than ibanez..Look them up on Musiciansfriend.com... Jackson's are also good downtuned.. Hope this helped
