This group does not have any discussions yet.
I played 4 strings exclusively for almost 30 years before moving to a 5 (guy was selling a Warwick standard 5 bubinga bass for $600 on Craigslist. Couldn't pass it up).
anyway, I see the advantages of the 5; I even had a 6 for a while but developing arthritis in my index finger on my fretting hand was getting too difficult. I just got a Carvin LB75 (it'll be here next week) and I really do love the tones of a 5. More mass in wood translates into more resonance. Maybe its just me.
