Hey, I have four, five and seven string basses, I use the one I want depending on my mood. It is easier to get my fingers between the strings on the four, but it doesn't make that much of a difference even with the seven. Its really subjective, what do you feel like? Do you enjoy the spacing and feel of a four? Do you want the range of a seven? It also depends on what your job is as a bass player, more and more we are not supporting players. I say experiment! There's no law here. Check out Bill Dickens, amazing slap technique on seven and yes even nine string bass! www.billthebuddhadickens.com
I love having the option of the seven string, but I also like my four stringers for different songs. Have fun. -B
