I've been playing four string basses the twenty years or so I've called myself a bassist, but now I'm interested in adding strings to my range. What I'm most interested in, now, is adding a high C string to my range for tapping purposes. My question: Am I better off getting a six string bass, which will also give me the low B (I'm a traditional tuner), or should I get a five string and string it EADGC (which will require replacing the nut)? If anyone has advice on what kind of cheap (under $300) five- or six-string bass for tapping, only, please feel free to let me know. Thanks!
