I finally decided to go nuts and change over to the high C crowd in the five string world. I figured, what the hell? I bought a six string set since A) No one I am aware of make five string sets with a high C B) I can always shift them over if I don't like the C, cause I'm going to save the B (^ List feature ) All went well. I was afraid that the nut slot issue might give me trouble. The slots look like they are a little big, but I don't have any rattling so I guess all is well. I had to do a quick tweak to the truss rod, but that was no problem. Also, since the only six string set available was 34" scale, I was kinda gambling that all would be well considering I have a 35" bass. But it works, and it works well. I highly recommend it.
