I am an experienced drummer and my wife has played other instruments as well. She has expressed a strong interest in learning bass guitar. The problem is neither of us knows if she has long enough arms and fingers to effectively play bass. She is 5'2" and has fairly small hands and short arms and fingers. Obviously adult bass guitars aren't available in an infinite array of sizes, will it be a problem for her to find a quality instrument that fits her? If you do think it would work, what does a decent complete rig cost? We would like something fairly nice she could grow into vs. grow out of...any specific suggestions on brands, models, etc. Also, what about starting out with 5 (if it fits her) or 6 (probably not) string vs. 4? Thanks in advance for your replies! J.
