I was going to post this anyway, but, it'll be appropriate for the post below by She Devil.

I'm looking for a five string, and have a few ideas in my head, but, I'm not in a hurry to buy anything, and I honestly don't need another bass, I just want a fiver. I was just browsing around, and saw an Epiphone Les Paul bass for $469.00
at Musiciansfriend. Then, I went over to Samash, and they have them for $219.00!
That was no typo: $219.00! Now a Les Paul type bass was not on my list at all, but, for that price I'm very tempted. So I'm just telling anyone who might want a decent 5 string without spending a fortune where to get one. I haven't played one, but honestly, how bad can it be? I have a feeling it would actually sound pretty good.

Has anyone played or owned one? How does one place sell the same exact instrument for half the price of another? This is not a sale. I work three Subway stops from Sam Ash's Manhattan store, so if I go in there I know I'm going to by one. Lord, give me self control.
