Hi, My name is Dakota. I'm new to the forums and I'm a percussionist. actually I'm a drummer. I was at guitar center and I was going to buy a five string but the employee told me that a 4 string is the only way to go. and that I shouldn't buy a 5 string because they are way harder learn on. I want to play metal with my friends band that needs a bass. and I have a budget of $600. what should i get??????
