Ok. I This may be used tread but I hope yu will still help me. I currently play cheap six-string, but I want to move to five. Why? I have noticed that I really don`t need the six. I mostly play Iron Maiden and Metallica etc. so there is no need for the C-string. Plus I don`t like the sound of the C. I want the bass to be fairly light and it should have fast easy access nec. I would also like it to have 24 (or more) frets. If you have any suggestion that are not on my list, please tell me.
