I realize that this type of poll/questionaire has been likely done ad nauseum, so I'm taking a slightly different angle with my approach. I'd like to know not only why you all prefer the string config that you do, but also what styles of music you play. It seems that no matter what style I play, I go back to my 5's. I guess I'm a rocker at heart, but regularly play Jazz, R&B, Funk, Progressive and even Country (not my favorite... but they're paying gigs...). I've owned quite a few 4 bangers: Fender, Roscoe, MTD, MMan, KSD, Aria Pro to name a few. It seems that the past several years I always end up playing my 5-strings. I've had a couple of 6'ers and a Roscoe 7 for awhile too, but always go back to the 5. It just feels 'right' to me, and allows me to evoke my full thought process better. I feel a deep urge to have access to the low D, yet don't care for drop tunings. What say you all?
