5-strings

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by McCalister999, Oct 31, 2004.


  1. I am an intermediate bass guitar player, and have been recently looking into a 5-string, but have little money to spend. What are some quality sounding 5-strings for little money?

    the neck is 1.75" wide at the nut, and 3" wide at the 24th fret. If I can get an email address from you, I can send you some sound clips in a few minutes.
