SO, I've been away from playing for a few years. Used to play a Zon Sonus 4 for years. Loved it perfect feel and sound. Got approached about a new project that would require a 5 String due to multiple alt tunings. Picked up a Ibanez sr605, spacing seemed odd to me. High strings at the first position seemed a little cramped, but the B and E i can fly on. (in this project i will spend a good deal of time there) I have to be more conscious of my left hand technique while my right has a nice light touch, while i still have be more exact. So, now i found Zon Sonus 5, string spacing seems much more natural, but playing in the first position in the low strings is VERY difficult, painful actually. I can't seem to find the right position with the strap height. Hopefully my wrist will stretch out. not sure. Plus there is some neck dive that is irritating. So torn, Iby is so comfy and doesn't sound all that great, while the Zon sounds great and isn't comfortable. I'm just not used to pain while practicing or playing. but than again I'm in my 40's now.
