Good 5 string basses are a lot harder to find than 4 strings IMHO, especially under $1000. Lot of of time, the low B sounds like crap, or the neck width gets unwieldy.

I would definitely field check any 5 string before buying to check out the tone and how it feels. If you have small hands, you may want to take that into consideration

I have a Soundgear (Ibanez)5 string SR-405 which I am pretty pleased with. It was $550 plus tax.
