Postby Billhw13 » Mon Jul 11, 2011 1:21 pm I was wrong about selling most of my gear (I saved a 78 P) and all of my amps, and essentially quit playing music.
Six years later, I want back in.

When I was actively gigging and recording, I was back and forth between 4's and 5's...but I'm thinking that if I'm going to get my chops back up to par, it might as well be on a 5.

So, looking for something with not-so-tight spacing... Lakland, Fender, Pedulla, Yamaha TRB are fivers that I've had in the past and felt comfortable on. oh yeah...trying to keep to a reasonable budget too.. whatcha got ?

Welcome back to the abyss. I myself have done that more than once. I think it's part of paying dues.....most of us bump into that wall if we stay in it long enough. No fiver for sale but do like my Lakland for 5r string spacing.
