I've seen a 5 string for not much money on a well known retailers site, just thought I'd ask the question here. Beggers can't be choosers (sort of) but what's out there in a Squier, Ibanez,Cort stylee for under £200

    I have a mint condition Yamaha 5 String TRBX305 in white. I couldn't get away with the 5 strings after 40 years of 4 strings, but it is perfect and plays effortlessly, a great bass. £200 but I'd have to ask for the £25 postage as these were 350 new. I have vintage Fenders and Music-mans, and I rate this bass very highly. In a box, no case, packed well.

    That's a great deal. Those Yamaha  basses are really fine instruments for the money.

    Last year's unloved Christmas presents should be going cheaply now.

    Yamaha RBX or Ibanez/Soundgear are well-made. There is a lot of overlap between the Cort Action, Squier MB and the cheapest Ibanez SRs. They are all made in the Cort factory.

    Has it got to be a five-stringer? Would a drop tuned four string meet the brief?
    Be seeing you.

    Potentially not, it's for low low tunings

    Lower than BEAD on a 34" scale length? Intriguing. 
    Be seeing you.
