Hello, I've become a part of the 5-string market just recently (and once again, after owning an SRX705 and Stingray5). I'm looking for a new 5 stringer around 800,900 EUR. I'll use it for pop (think of Michael Buble - Home), rock (think of Anouk - Nobody's wife) and a bit of r'n'b (think of many slow, smooth songs). I don't tap, but I like to slap a bit, every once in a while. There aren't that many basses available around here, so I could probably get me one of the following : Ibanez (DWB35,BTBs SRXs, SRs, K5, GWB2), bunch of Fenders, Cort Josh Paul Signature, maybe a Yamaha TRB1005, Warwicks, .. I've already tried Lakland 55-0x series, which I found quite nice, but not quite me (a bit too punchy, a bit too bright for me). The weight of the bass is not an issue at the time. I like thin necks (which is why I found the Ray to be a bit too chunky for me) and the scale length is not an issue, even though I prefer 34'' basses. The string spacing is not an issue, even though I prefer it to be a bit on the narrow side (around 17mm). I'd really appreciate any input. Thank you in advance!
