Would be much cheaper to buy a five string bass.
If its even possible.

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.
It is possible, if you change the neck, and the bridge. So, it's a lot cheaper to buy a used 5-string

edit: forgot to add, you'd have to get new pups as well.
^ Not to mention the ass load of body work you'll have to do, probably a refinish too.
