I know you guys seem to hate these questions, but I think I can be fairly specific. I played a MIA 08 4 string fender pbass with Lindy pus for the last 8 months. About 1.5 months ago I got picked up for a working dance variety band. They immediately said I needed a new "rig." I knew this wasn't the case, (carvin bx500 and gk 212 neo cab) but they didn't like my tone and I didn't either. I borrowed an ibanez sr1200 from a friend and absolutely love it. The entire band noticed a huge difference in tone and everyone is happy, including me. Now, its time to get into a five string because a hand full of songs call for it. I've never really owned one and I'm stumped on where to go. I'm testing out a peavy accelerator fiver right now. I like it, but would like to see what else is out there. I think I'd like to stay away from fenders. It needs to be active with good tonal options. It needs to be light weight because I don't like heavy basses for 4 hour gigs. price range $400-$800. (if there is something higher end that I really like, I could sell the fender and I'd have about $1500 to spend.) I look forward to hearing ideas. thanks.
