which is better for a beginner bass player but is pretty good and is going in to a band. 4 string or 5?
im heading for 4 cuz i dont think that the 5 string is needed..

post me please!

if you find a gd bass with a 5th string may as well get that and have a few more notes. it also means you can learn any five string bass songs.

if you are a metal band that likes to play korn, then i suppose its good for a 5 string. go with chobbsy's advice
