well I've been thinking about getting a new schecter stiletto but I'm not sure if I'm ready for a 5 string yet, but how did you decide when to get a fiver and what are sime thoughts on this



or just stay with a 4 string such as this



also the bass I already own is a fender MIM jazz

It's not really about being ready for 5 strings. It's not harder or more advanced, it's just different. Play a few and see how they feel. The major difference is having more notes available in each position which feels like a real luxury to me.

that fiver looks great

ive been told that if ya gunna get a a bass with more then 4 strings to get a 6 sting as theres not alot of point in 5 strings and you may aswell go the whole hog and get a 6. i find the bass that cost over £500 play so much nicer then ones that are cheaper so unless you got a fair wack of money keep saving and get a really nice one you wont regret it.

I got my 5er Because it sounded better than anyother stingray. then again mine is a little more than just a 5er, it's the best 5er i've ever played. i agree with Bass Is Bestest here and say save up as much as you can for the 5er. however; i say don't go 6 unless you really want to

Why? Why is 6 automatically better than 5? Why do you believe everything you hear?

My very first bass was a 5 string. I just got a peavey millenium 5. I dont use the 5th string very much. A six string bass wouldnt be very bad for stuff like jazz band at school and stuff like that. If I were you I would just go with a six string. I sometimes wish I had one. That extra string would probably be real handy. The only bad thing about it is that it looks like it would be a bitch to play since the neck is so wide, but I wouldnt know. I never played one.

no im just saying that people who go for 5 strings have gone for sixes later on and while 5s are good ya may aswell go for a 6 because u get more range with it and it would be more fun to master. but toitally my opinion dont take it as me badmouthing 5s
