Hey guys, it's been a while since I've posted but I'm lurking frequently. Lot's of school work now that I'm a senior (college).
To business, becoming more and more metal since fall 08 (ya it's specific) I have often thought of a 5-string but never really pulled the trigger. I have 3 basses and a guitar at the moment but one bass is an old GSR and has lots of sentimental value but no real value. Another bass is acoustic and I just need to have one. And, I'm not getting rid of my guitar. So, basically I want to sell my primary 4-string and get a primary 5-string with almost the same setup.
I have an ESP LTD B-500. It was a limited edition so you really can't find them anywhere. I love everything about it, the looks, components, etc etc but it's lacking a string. I want to pick up the ESP LTD F-155. Basically same bass but different aesthetics and string amount. What do you guys think?
Also, any ideas how to ship a bass? I don't want to ship, but it might be the only way I can sell my B-500 so I need help on that front.
The two: B-500
Do you need it immediately? I would save and be patient. Hell, for $350, you can get a nice used bass off craigslist that will be better than the F-155.
