I would be scared of a $400 5 string. Unless it's like a used Yamaha or something. Most people start on 4 strings and move up to 5. There is no reason you "need" to do this other than 5 string necks are traditionally wider. Makin it harder for a beginner hand to get comfortable. My advice would be to look into yamaha's RBX series. I played one of thier 5 strings for a long time. You'll be happy with it. A very versatile model.
