I've been playing bass for a few months now but I'm looking to buy a five string bass. BUT I'm not sure of which type to get...

I want a 5 string bass that has a hard rock/metal tone but hopefully isn't uber expensive. Can anybody reccommend me a brand or a make?
I guess. I reccomend Shecter or music man.

Run around the city jacking off in random places... and when you cum, jump out at people and yell "SURPRISE!" Then walk away calmly as if nothing had happened. That's what I would do, anyway.

Whats your pricerange and whats your style. Ibanez is probably the best brand to look into if its under 700.
If you want a cheap fiver definetely get an Ibanez SR205.

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!
Schecter Stilettos are $600 to $700 and are a fine choice for a bass.
Holiday, Boulevard Of Broken Dreams And American Idiot's Solos!!!! Those Are Soooo Good!!!
Spectors give a great rock/metal tone. The Legend 5 is $800, which might be a out fo your price range.

I own a Q5 Pro, which is pretty much the same thing. Great bass.

Besides that, I would definetly recommend Schecters.
i have an ibanez BTB 405 qm, it is incredible! one of the best you can probably get for under £500!
Look at an Ibanez Ergodyne. Be sure to get the Luthite body thing, because that body can take a heck of a beating. its like 750 USD though. But its got a good front end to the note and is built extremely tough.

Get a cort
Washburn RB2500 (5 String)
Yamaha BB400 Fretless (1981)
Carlo Giordano 3/4 Upright (White)

Orange Bass Terror 500

I second the 405 or 505, depending on whether you like black or natural mahogany.

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.
