I am NOT trying to start a "4 versus more" war. Whatever number of strings you use is cool. I'm simply curious as to how many of us have taken the leap, at least some of the time, to 5 or more strings. The other poll up top (what kinds of basses do you play?) doesn't answer the question because it is multiple choice. Currently 57% of the votes are for four stringers, but we don't know how many of those also play "more-string" basses. P.S. If you play a bass with less than four strings, just vote for the four unless you also play a 5+ stringer!
