: I wanna play Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age type stuff on bass, (i.e droppin down to a C). What kind of rig do these guys use?

: Thanks for your input

Not sure what they use but any 5-string will get you down to a B. Some guys have even so far as to restring a 4-string using B - E - A - D. Be careful with this method... if the neck is not origianly designed for 5-strings, it may take some tweaking to get everything right. The string tensions are not the same as with a 4-string. Good luck,
Dave
