Was thinking of making the jump from 4 to 5 string. I would like a Warwick Thumb. Found a used neck thru 4 for $1100...or get the new bolt on wide neck 5 for $1500? We currently have 2 original metal songs that I could use the B string on. Of course if I get a 5 I would write accordingly. Just not sure...is there anyone that was in my place? Is it basically sink or swim? How long did it take you to ghet accustomed to a 5? It seems when Iplay a five in hthe shops I always hit the B string on accident...not good.
