I'm looking for a reasonably priced 5-string bass to replace my stolen Tribute L-2500.  Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I like the Squier Active Jazz Deluxe V. It is an amazing bass for the money and I get tons of compliments on it's tone. Other options are the Yamaha BB415 or BB615, Peavey Cirrus 5 BXP, and the Ibanez SR505. I am sure there are more but that is all I can think of this morning.

The new one might feel and play better than the one that got stolen! That won't take away from the fact that your bass got stolen, Angry but somehow, God always makes a way. Smiley Here's to you ending up with the one that feels and plays better than ever. Cool

Yamahas are always a good bet- the RBX series is really nice to play

Which RBX would you recommend? I was somewhat underwhelmed by the B string on the 375, otherwise it was as you said a really nice bass. Great neck and nice tone.

+1 on the Yamaha RBX375.  I just ordered one as a 5-string "starter" (my other bass is a Lakland 44-02).  Great bang for the buck...can be had new for $400 street price.  I agree that the B string is a little underwhelming (presumably because it's a 34" scale?), but still OK IMHO.  My LMS also carries G&L -- I found the Yamaha to be lighter than the Tribute and, for me, just easier to play.  Tributes are still great basses for the money, tho.

BTW, I think the RBX-375 is the only 5-string in the current RBX lineup.

If you want to go passive, I just bought a Fender MIM Standard Jazz Bass a few months ago it it has become my MAIN Bass. I bought a four-stringer, but they do make a five. I put in the Vintage Noiseless pickups though - just for the noise reduction - the stock pickups were fine, and the y had a touch more growl.

Just my vote,

Rob

Hi bob,
I have a 34 scale 5 as well. You might try getting a little heavier gauge b string...

It's going to be another Tribute L-2500 premium.

A BIG +1 on that!!!!

I play a Yamaha RBX 765A (blood red with gold hardware). It's a great playing AND great looking bass and is a real steal for the money!
