Once I played played a 35" scale 5 string (my old Modulus M92-5) it's been much tougher to accept a 34" scale version. I can feel the difference.I don't see myself ever buying another full scale.
Peavey GV (5-string)The Schecter "fiver" was a bust. Nice looking bass with EMG/HZ pickups and decent electronics but a neck profile as flat and shallow as that one and I will never become friends. If a nice Peavey Cirrus 5 string pops up somewhere that may be the ticket or somehow, somewhere, someday I finally find that Modulus I sold.

Thank Pool. I'll add that to my prospects list and yes 17.5" spacing. Not many around at the moment but it's not like I have to have a "fiver" right now anyway. I finished up that Jazz Bass tonight by installing the new electronics and adjusting the pickup height. Interestingly enough Fender has spec'd them with poplar bodies now instead of basswood. Poplar can soak up a bit more high end so I'll need to mess around with amp settings for a bit to get it dialed in as I like it.The
Peavey GV (5-string)
Is the way to go.
Not Modulus produced necks, like many say.
I believe it was Bell and Carlson that made them.
Narrow spacing, 35" scale (I believe)
