Hey guys, I've been playing bass for a year now, and I really fell in love with the instrument itself, and made me want to pursue my dream of studying music.

If things go well, I'll be starting the career this September. The thing is, apparently they use 5-string basses for classes there, and all I have is a 4-strings Cort bass.

The point here is: I'm looking for a nice "cheap" 5-string bass. I've got my eyes on a Squier that is 200, and another Squier with active pickups for 300. So I need to know how good Squier basses are, or if you got another sugestion for a relatively cheap 5-strings bass.

These are the basses I'm referring to:

Thanks in advance.
Why so serious?
