    i have a ibanez sr905, neck through, string thru, active bartolini's

    i love it , great for my style metal.... strings are spaced a bit tighter than a normal bass so playing at a decent speed inst a problem, but if you wanna slap the shit out of it then you should just go drink pepsi max......

    I wouldn't buy a Carvin 5, and I certainly wouldn't buy a Yamaha Myung model. Those things are beasts. If you want a smoking 5 string that's also an awesome value for the buck as well, get a Lakland 55-01 or 55-02. There are none finer for the price made anywhere by anyone. Grab one used off the 'Bay from someone upgrading to a 55-94.
