    Hey Folks,
    I've been a 4 string player forever and need
    a backup axe in case I break a string.
    So, I went into Guitar Center to look for
    another 4 string.
    While I was in there I fell in love with
    an Ibanez 5 string.
    Do you think I should go for it..a 5 instead
    of another 4?
    I mean, how easy is it to play both
    4 and 5 and always switching off?
    Thanks in advance.

    If the necks comfortable. And you have use for either low B or high C string. Then concider the fiver if it sounds good for low B. Otherwise look at the 4 string version. Or another of the same bass you allready have. Since its a backup bass. Haveing two of same or pratically same bass can be ideal for backup one.
  3. You might find going between the 4 and 5 a little difficult at first, but after a while you wont even notice. I'd say get it, you might end up wanting another 5 in the end.
