I bought my SR405 at Guitar Trader in San Diego for $315.

The 3 band eq is very nice because it makes it easy to change tone. The neck is pretty thin for a five string, but not too thin. The sound is very smooth (also a con). The natural finish looks very nice. It's cheap for a five string with active electronics.

The SR405 lacks any real growl (it's very "smooth"), depending on the style of music that you want to play. The strings that come with it arent great, but they certainly are adequate.

Very high quality, no problems with the construction whatsoever. Feels very solid. The knobs are really on there.

An excellent budget 5 string with many features found in higher priced basses. It is well constructed and sounds good, except it lacks a growl.
