The solution costs more money.... IMO a 5-string needs a wider neck than a 4-string. I'm just completely uncomfortable on these narrow-neck 5's. But a good wide 5 costs substantially more than a 4 - tho I recently tried a Peavey 5-string which sells for under $1500. and sounded & felt real good.
: I don't have any problems slapping 4 strings (don't own one just tried it in the shop) but when it comes to slapping on my Stingray 5, the thumb is hopeless. Any thoughts. Thanks.
