Hey TB, I'm a long-time four string player who jams weekly with friends playing a wide range of covers and original tunes... I am thinking about adding a five-string to my stable (which includes a Modulus 4 and a Carvin AC40 fretless) and have a few questions: In general, do folks who have moved from 4 to 5 strings find that the greater ranger and reduced need to move one's hands is worth the greater weight and complexity? IF I want a fiver with wider spacing (similar to a Fender Jazz V) what mid-priced (e.g., <$1500 new or used) non-Fender basses do you recommend? For folks who play fanned fret basses, I know that adjusting to a fanned fretboard doesn't seem too hard, but does moving back to a standard bass throw you off at all? Thanks!
