I currently have a four string BTB that is 34" and have the biggest strings I can find on it. We are currently in a drop B tuning, so my Four is sort of setup like a Five. We are considering going down to A like White Chapel and others. I know I need a 35" scale now, it is getting too flubby! Would you go with a five string, or stay with a four like I have it? I follow the guitars occasionally, but I am not slapping and plucking, just holding down the bottom end. The only things I am finding are other BTBs with 35" and The F series from ESP that are ugly to me, lol. Any suggestions? I would appreciate it. I am using a Mesa Carbine with a Powerhouse 1000 for my rig. Thanks!
