    Im looking for a good 5 string in the $550 to $800 range. Anyone have any suggestions? I was considering an Ibanez SR505 or SR905. Are these good for that price range or is there something better?

    One of the new Yamaha BB415 or BB615 would be a good choice. I also second the Lakland Skyline. It's a damn good bass. I'd also think about one of the MTD Kingstons.

    A used 55-01 in excellent condition is probably in the low to middle of your price range. In fact, there's a lot of stuff out there if you're okay with used.
