    There's gotta be room for a 5 string Jazz bass, right?

    It's a new classic. And.... you would be the ONLY people out there with a kit for one!!!

    Cha-ching!

    Sundragon - gotta agree with you - a 5 string jazz would be nice - that said - there's already a couple of 5 string options - lets see if there is any more love for them...

    The only 5 string bass options that I can find are an Explorer (no chance) or an Ibanez (ho hum).

    If you're not selling 5 string basses, the selection on offer probably has a lot to do with it.

    Personally, I'd like to see a 5 string Stingray kit. I'd snap one up - preferably single Humbucker. (should this last line go into it's own thread?)

    5 string J Bass would be cool.

    Only bought the EX-5 as I love the shape and as a bonus it came with 5 strings however I still would have been happy with 4.

    About 18 - 24 months ago I was lusting after the Ibanez spalted 5 string that is now only available as a 6 which made it a deal breaker.

    Agree that 5 String Stingray would be the better option and while we are at it can we add a spalted top for extra cost to any kit?

    Pretty much the only 5 string design I like.
