ive been researching a lot of basses (mostly ibanez) and ive decided that i want to get a new ibanez (my current bass is an ibanez). Ive decided on the btb1005e or the btb1006e. my only problem (besides money) is that i dont know whether to get a five or a 6 string. The six string is only 80 dollars more on the site i found. i own a 4 currently and i do a lot of slap/pop music. a 6 string would maybe be beneficial in my style of playing, but ive read so many posts that say that they had the same frame of mind and the c string only got in their way. i wanted to know your opinions on whether 6 string would be better than a 5, in this particular case.
