Okay... I've gone mad, I guess... I went into GC and they had a Steinberger XQ5... bolt on 5 string, super narrow spacing, funky shape, etc. Well, to be honest, I kind of liked it. I'm in a band that plays music well suited for that type of bass (and the dudes aside from me are all old )and we play sort of late 80's early 90's type music. It would not only be fun to have, but practical as well (never out of tune, fits in tight spaces). The thing is... I like a 35" scale, graphite neck. And don't really want to have to have someone make me custom ball end strings every time I need to change. I know of some companies, but need links and help. What's out there? Anyone have pics? Is it even worth my time to concern myself with this?
