    :eek: I can't decide between a thumb nt 4 or a thumb nt 5. I've got the same price on them but I can't seem to weigh the differences. I've been playing a stingray 5. On the 5 string thumb it'll feel more like home because of that but it's got small string spacing and the 4 has the string spacing but just not the B string. I love the feel, sound and look of both. I need help weighing the options here on this one fellas and it would help to know how wide the string spacing on the 5 string can be widened to(is it even close to the MM 5?). Thanx;)

    ALSO- is there a big difference in sound because of pickup placement:confused:
  2. Go for the five, always.

    {here it goes another how many strings arguement}

    In your basement.
    I know it has been said a million times but. . .play them both. If you are going to spend this type of money without playing you are not being wise.

    I sold my stingray to get a thumb. To me the StingRay has much wider spacing than the thumb. Maybe I am wrong or maybe it is the way the basses sit on my body. Again back to play before buy. I like the spacing on the Stingray better than the thumb but I also play a Jazz and that is even smaller than the thumb. It is all about adapting.

    I say go for the 5 string. Once you get used to it, (it'll take about a week) it will be just as useful as the 4, but with the b string! Much more versatile, and you can play with detuned guitars no problem.
