    Hi, I'm looking at buying a 5-string and need some suggestions. Also, I want the 5th string to be a high-C and not a low-B. If I buy a low-B and restring it with C, will it buzz and rattle? Any help on this question and suggestions on basses would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I don't know about the rattle thing, but you'd probably have to replace the top nut if you're going to convert a BEADG setup to a EADGC.
