Instead of buying a 5-string, I have decided to get an amp, and i sure as hell can't get both. BEAD tuning has greatly captured my interest, and I would do it right now, except that I won't have the G string. I can always play up the neck a bit, but some songs, for example Crossroads by the Offspring, require the G string. A fiver would be better but I just don't have the dough right now. What do you think?
