Should I get a 5 string?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by ScottFrettzBass, Jan 7, 2012.


  1. I'm usually a Rock Bassist, Usually using my trusty Fender J, but my uncle, who plays in a classic rock band, has a 5 string Ibanez *not sure what model, he didn't tell me*
    he said "I really didn't like the 5th string, so I'll sell it to you." Advice from a bassist at the local music store said
    "Every good bassist should have 3 basses. A Good 4 String, A Good 4 String Fretless, and a good 5 string." Which I am working towards getting a fretless, but that's another story.
    So should I buy my uncle's 5 string?
