Hi, I have a question : I am considering to purchase a 5 strings electric bass, I am looking for a versatile instrument. I play mainly rock, pop and few others styles ... As I am playing guitar also, I really don't want a very big and large neck with very long scale lenght ... I am a novice in 5 strings, so could you advice me some good models of 5 strings electric bass please ?? Price range : around 1000/1200 dollars or a little more, I think I will buy a used bass in mint condition. I saw severals models like Musicman Sterling 5, G&L L-1505/L-2500, Rickenbacker 4004/5CII or 4003/S5 ... All advices on differents models and manufacturers of 5 strings electric bass will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
