So I decided to get this Bass insted of that yamaha. I just wanna know if any one has any complaints about it. Is it a good bass? Can I get better 5 string bass for under $400? Help me out.

1. Fretboard is made of plastic, is very clacky and gets a coat of scratches within a few days.
2. High pitched frizzle if you boost the treble at all.
3. Slap switch is shit.
4. Looks awesome in white.
5. STOP! Decent amp THEN decent bass.
6. String positition at the headstock makes altering the truss rod a pain in the arse.
7. Sounds awesome so long as you have a semi decent amp.
8. But it's still just a squier made from very crappy parts.

Its a fairly good bass but keep looking at other stuff. You could probably get a second hand ibanez sr for that much or a cort. It'll do but look at some other options aswell.

I take it your in a more practice/home playing situation than gigging right? If you we're gigging I'd say go for a more powerful amp but that really isn't important if your not. The only gripe I have about the Squier deluxe V is the plastic fretboard. I'd recommend a Ibanez 5 string SR or SRX, there not my thing but they are pretty nice to play (considering buying one myself) but I'm more likely to go for a Fender MIM standard V over one. But just go to a shop with your budget in mind and try everything you can afford and see what you like best!

Ibanez are pretty good for slap and pop, there better than lets say... A P-bass, even though you can slap to a certain extent on any bass. At the moment I've got a tone I love so much eq'd with a bit of compression its like really nice sounding and works for nearly everything I play. Sounds pretty lush with slap as well.

Not sure on the price in America but I tried a Fender MIM Standard Jazz V and I found it pretty nice, it was about £390 so I dunno how much it would be in dollars. or the US for that matter.
