Hi. I've been playing a 4 string bass since about November last year, and I want to get a new bass hopefully towards the end of this year. I've always wanted a 5 string for the extra lows, but the only thing I don't like about the 5's is how the B string is so floppy. Could you please tell me the advantages and disadvantages of getting a new 4 or 5 string bass. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Oh and I'm either looking at a Ibanez or Spector. Thanks.
