Preferably a 5 string, which is versatile enough to play relatively anything with a good tone, my band plays stuff similar to Birthday Massacre and MSI.. but in my spare time I play stuff like Modest Mouse and Sigur Ros... any suggestions?

I really don't want a Ric :/

Okay, what about a 5 string Ibanez BTB? They sound great, plus they're damn sexy :P

Please stop double posting, there is an edit button for a reason.
But it really depends what kind of music you want to play, for versatility an Ibanez or something would work fine, a Soundgear 505 or similar

Well there really aren't music stores around me where I can do that :[



Spend a few weeks taking trips out to what music stores you do have, or potentially run the risk of spending a few years with a bass you hate?


You lay me down as I go to the store
Sorrow ate me, I'm not me anymore
Play these heavens one more time
I'm not yours and I'm not mine


When you hear music after it's over, it's gone in the air.
You can never capture it again.

Well, out local shop doesn't even let you sit behind the (only) drumkit, so I traveled to another city (Still, Israel < every other country) in hopes of finding something to choose from.

At the very least you can look at reviews on youtube, see which ones sound nice. you won't get the feel but you'll get the sound right.

Not really. Very few people put decent audio up, so there is normally some distortion and compression of the signal, which can drastically change the sound.

I only ever play 5 strings these days

5 strings are great- extra notes, and more importantly, better economy of motion. IMHO, 5 strings are better than 4.

+1. I'm also considering moving up to 6 in the distant future.

Ben just knows that it doesn't mean you never have to drop tune.

It annoys me so when people think you never have to drop 5ers


I have never had to drop mine. As a side effect, my string skipping has got damn efficient. However, I have never tried to learn a song yet where a drop tuning would make it far easier.
