I ask you guys about trading for a Washburn T34 you told me not to. So I did not get rid of my American Fender P. I am not a big fan of the sound of a P bass and its a 4 string. I have only played 4 string bass guitars and that is what I started on. I do not read music I can read tab, but played guitar in worship bands, Christain Metal bands also Blues bands. I play by ear any way my question, I have a guy wanting to trade me a nice Fender USA 5 string Jazz bass. What is the advantage of the a 5 string and is it harder to play. Is it worth the trade?
