    Seriously, I have this big wonky F***** PJ5 that I hate. The Caprice is so sleek and cool-looking + a tad smaller than the P. I'd order a C5 in a second. Based on the Zero responses, I guess I'm the only one that wants one - dang!

    I'd be interested in a 5, but, so far, no one's saying anything about it so I assume.....

    Meanwhile, if you want a better, more ergonomic 5er, there's a Bongo. But you have Sterling 5s. I think you're okay!

    The sterling 5's are a monster.
    The HH i have has so many different tones on hand and plays amazing.

    I would imagine they're waiting to see how the 4-string versions sell before deciding whether to make a 5-string version.

    I can't wait for the Caprice to hit the showrooms. Hopefully, one of the local GCs will get one so I can try it out.

    Agree - I'm all over the Sterling 5s - well, all over my two H's - might pick up a HH again sometime. Nice Sterling BTW - a nice piece of ash.

    Oh yeah, that would make sense - it took a while before the Sterling 5 was released. I'm looking forward to trying out the Caprice too.

    Thanks, it is a beauty, saw it in my local store one day and couldnt walk out the shop without it. The versatility with the extra pickup just blew me away.
    The caprice does look nice but i dont think id go back to a passive bass. Would love to try one though.

    Not yet. I'm hoping EBMM will announce one at NAMM 2018.

    The problem I've always noticed with the 5 string basses is how to get around the split P-style pickup. Usually it's two identical half pickups, but with a 5 string that isn't possible.

    If Fender can do it with the P-Bass 5, I'm sure EBMM can.

    If your interested, I just made a loop using my Caprice a few minutes ago. Everyday it seems, I fall more and more in love with it. I don't think there's a tone I can't get out of it. LOL =)
