I'm going to a 5 string and I've narrowed my options down to three Laklands. The 55-64 and DJ5 didn't make it into the final showdown. Let me know which one of these I should buy. It's going to be used for everything from Country music in smoky honky-tonks to "variety band" private gigs to sessions. I love passive jazz basses but I also love Stingrays and active basses. The only thing I'm not real big on at the moment is a Pbass tone (just got rid of one). Chime in!
