I've done a search on BEAD tuning and seen all the reasons to do it and not to do it. I REALLY want to get a 5er but that's out of the question for the foreseeable future, sooo..... since I want to go low I'm debating converting my MIM Fender Jazz to BEAD. I play Praise and Worship music that leans toward Alternative Rock. My jazz has Bart j4 pups, the electronics have been upgraded with new pots that are wired for series / parallel, and it's strung with Rotosound SwingBass 66 strings. In church I use a Peavey Basic 112, for Praise and Worship gigs I use my Ampeg SVT 3pro with an SVT 1540 cab. I've been playing for a couple of years and have finally found a sound that I like, BUT I would like to have the option of the B string. I very rarely (if ever) use the G string. If I did go BEAD I'd get a 5 string set and just not use the G. So, it's time to ask the experts! With those considerations what would you do? Would I be able to get a good quality B out of my setup or should I just hold out for a 5er sometime in the next 10 years? Ha! Will Barts made for a 4 string set up be able to give me a beefy B. (Beefy B - sounds like a rap artist's name. Ha!) Thanks for your help.
