    NBD: Big Brother edition

    A few months back I picked up my current/only bass, an Ibanez EDB600, and while it plays great and looks just as good as it plays, I snagged it because in the case that I couldn't find a 5-string that I really liked, I could down tune that as my backup and know I still had a solid instrument in the home. After practicing more and finding more stuff that uses a 5 string, and knowing that I really wanted access for both the low doomy stuff and the high for practicing as much as I could from the get go, I went on the hunt for the 5 string version of the same model and finally pulled the trigger on one.

    Overall, neck is a little beefier, I assume to accomodate the extra string, and it's not nearly as acoustically loud as it's four string counterpart, but it plays just the same and will fit in just fine with the rest of the gang.

    That really is a nice-looking body shape.

    On top of it being super comfortable just from the contoured edges, the body itself is arched as well. If that's not a tummy cut, I don't know what is.

    Gorgeous bass. Do you like it more than your 4-string?

    Tough to say as I've had more time with the 4 string, but after my initial day of playing, it plays great and has the narrow spacing I like, so with faster stuff there's no issues skipping strings or doing any sort of runs.
