Hello guys I am long time guitarist, but I will be playing the bass guitar in my new band. The problem is, I have no idea about bass guitars. Guitarist in the band is playing with 8string guitars, so I think that I need 6 string bass or 5 string bass (with 6 string set). Am I right? I am currently thinking about Harley benton BZ-5000 or BZ 6000. To me, 6 string looks a bit overkill (I am a small guy, but with long fingers), but the 5string version has only 864mm scale, while 6 string version has 890mm scale. What do you think is better choice? Some inputs? I will be playing modern prog metal with a pick.
