Im getting ready to make the jump to a 5 string and would like some input. Ive done a lot of research through posts on TB, but I figured I would throw out the basses that I like for any additional input you might have. Ive been playing for almost 10 years and have been playing a Peavey for most of them. I play mainly rock/modern rock stuff, some slap and a little jazz. I really want a good all around bass since itll probably be another 10 years before I buy another!Id like to spend around $600-$700, but would probably be willing to go as high as $1200. Im willing to go used, but havent seen much variety in the used department and I dont want to buy used gear online unless Ive played it before. I liked: MM Stingray I finally got a chance to play one that was setup correctly Awesome Peavey Cirrus Saw a new one that has been on the rack for a while. Im not sure what exact model it is, but it was marked at $1200 and I got the impression that they would let it go for under $1000. Sounded like a good deal. Dean made in Czech Rep. It was a neck-thru and I think it was about $600. Dont know much about them. Spector 2000/5 Warwick FNA Tried, but not my thing: Ibanez Fender MIM or MIA Peavy Millenium G&L 2500 (yeah, I know its a great bass!) The only MTD dealer near me does not have the kingston or the heir, so I havent been able to try either. So far, Im leaning more towards the Stingray or Cirrus. Any input would be great.
