    Hello.

    NBD: My first 5 string - Steinberger Synapse bass for travel. First impressions.
    - Since it is shorter than a Fender, but weighs about the same, it is heavier than it looks.
    - String spacing is a little tight, but not too bad.
    - It hangs ok, but a little to the left. When I think I'm on the 3rd fret, I'm actually on the 5th fret.
    - The strings are in good shape. I'm not a slapper, but slap sounds good.
    - I got a .030 high C string from Just Strings to go E-C.
    - The Roto sound high C string is about 1/4 inch short.

    I'm liking it so far. I'm sure that I will be able to make the required adjustments.

    Nice! I have a pair of these (fretted and fretless) and like them. Enjoy!
