Pretty simple question eh? Just out of curiosity really. Reason I ask is b/c I scored a 5 string fretless SX recently (1st 5 string for me) and I'm not digging the tension on the B string (original strings so far, not sure what gauge they are). It hardly even resembles a musical note, it just sounds like PpPpPpPpPpPpPpP I definitely won't be keeping this bass for long, I think a 35" might be more up my alley but there's none around for me to try out. Are all 34" 5 stringers like this or is it just my $170 chinese cheapo?
