Buy some heavy guage strings not a 5 string set for drop C.
Put the heavy strings on then have it set up by a pro.

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.

That's called a nut. Get a heavy four-string set, or a light-ish set for a fiver, then tell a pro to set it up for Drop C.

I, and another bassist from this other band we play with all the time both do this. We both play in C. i (we both) found it helps the tone out a lot. i havent had any problems with my neck, and it plays and sounds way better. if it doesnt fit, you can always file it down a little, but id say if its in there, its good.

get a light five string set and lose the E string.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

FYI if it almost fits the nut, but won't quite go in, the string itself(assuming it's a roundwound) can be used as a file.
Nope, no sig here.

I've just ended up using 5 string sets and ditching the G. Never did my cort any harm

edit: except the nut might need filing
