I've always played four strings and I've pretty much decided on brand. It's gonna be a Warwick Thumb Bolt-On. I'm trading in my MusicMan Sterling for it because even though the MusicMan is very very versatile.. I love the aggresive punchy Warwick sound and that low-end growl. I play lots of everything.. but mostly a lot of scene music. Melodic Hardcore, Grind, Screamo, lots of metal-esque type things. Now... I'm not really sure if I should go for the five or the four. I know this would depend more so on my play style but I dunno.. I've tried both and I just can't decide. I'm much more comfortable with a four string, but I feel like I'll have a lot more options creatively with the five string. (I'm not a low-end hog or anything.. I do more than just cram everything on the low-end guitar roots. I don't play Nu-Metal junk. I live for Melody.) Opinions and advice would be much appreciated.
