5 String Questions

Thanks for all the feedback!
Thoughts on this bass? https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/GSR205BWNF--ibanez-gsr205bwnf-gio-walnut-flat

And links for any used bass if you feel like it, because I can’t seem to find any!
(the yamaha basses were a little expensive for me not upgrading my bass)


I have an SRMS805 and it has the same body shape, necl shape, which are pretty much standard for the SR line; it’s basically an upgraded version. I love mine - easy to play.

I’d buy a used SR instead of a new GSR personally.

One random example I just googled:

That one looks a little expensive to me - not recommending buying that specific one.

This looks close to what you’re looking for

I know I kinda left this thread hanging, but I have one more question…
So, guitar center are doing rental instruments now. I’m considering renting a 5 string in case I realise that I don’t actually need one. Is it a good idea?

If it’s anything like the rental schemes in the UK you have the option to buy if you want to keep the instrument so what do you have to lose?

It’s a good idea if you just want to see if 5 string is right for you, as long the cost and time commitment isn’t ridiculous.
