Let me modify that a bit - I loved the feel of the 5 string, which for me was a German made Warwick Corvette. That neck is something to admire, for sure. And once I got used to the low B string, it was easy to use. The problem I have is, I hate the sound of anything played on the B except what's below open E. But even then, really the D is the only note that sounds ok. (And even then, an open D sounds better.) I tried various strings for it and I'm pretty sure I just don't like the way a string that fat sounds, especially live. Go up the neck and you really get a muffled crappy sound out of it. It's great for playing without having to move up and down the neck so much, but the tone isn't there so I wind up going up an down the neck anyway, and the low B is just a thumb rest most of the time.
