quick 5 string question

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by cafin8edpenguin, May 14, 2004.


  1. I'm thinking of getting a stingray, I love the sound and the feel is great, but I was wondering, if I were to get a stingray 5, could I instead of having the B srting have the high C string? so the tuning would be E A D G C... because I would definately use the high C more than the low B.
     
  2. Sure, and there are string sets just for that purpose. The online sites sell them, and maybe the bigger stores, mom-and-pop shops usually don't. Not sure if a truss rod adjustment would be needed after that or not...

    Guaranteed to need a new nut and almost guaranteed to need a truss rod adjustment. A few days at a reputable music store and you'll have an E-C bass that is set up like a dream :)
