    Hi guys, I'm new to talkbass, and to a 5-string. I love the american standard 4-string that i have, but really want to get into a five string with a high C. Any suggestions on models, companies, or where the heck i can find one? thanks.

    Welcome to Talkbass.:D

    I personally don't know of any companies that are making a 5 string with a high C (although I am sure there might be a few). Buy yourself a five string bass, then string it with a set of strings with a high C instead of a low B.

    (not much help, I guess)
