Is the five string model a 35' scale? I wouldn't want a standard scale 5 so I must ask
nope....regular 34" scale
EBMM knows how to make a good 34" scale 5 string though, so I wouldn't be too hasty to judge before trying. There is more that goes into making a tight B string than scale length. I have played a few floppy 35" B strings and I used to own a Bongo 5, so I know from where I speak.
my stingray was a 34" scale and it was one of the tighest B strings ive ever played
Yep no big deal is it 35'' or 34''. Many 35'' have very floppy B string. It's just mater of setup.
Okay, so it's definitely tight enough? Wel obviously.... I just felt the need to ask again xD thanks everyone.
If it is setup poorly, it won't be tight enough. Mine was a little floppy when I got it (it was used). I did a setup myself, and used a thicker gauge B string (DR Lo-Riders 45-130, I think they are the best strings for the Bongo hands down), and it was tight as can be. Doing your own setups is super easy on EBMM basses too, so you should be fine.
