I am looking to either buy or create a bass that is strung B-E-D-A. Does anyone know who all ready makes one? If I take a regular P-Bass and cut the nut to fit the strings, Does anyone know why this would or would not work? I want the low end of a 5-string, but I do not want the 5th string. How does the tension work on a 4-string that would make doing this difficult because of a 34" scale? Do you think that it would allow enough tension on the neck to get good tone? HELP HELP HELP. I do not have any close people I can geek out with when it comes to such fine detail. I know that there are a few of us out there. THanks everyone.
