That is the best option of course..Always try before you buy..And see how it feels in your hand..Also always look at the string action (height) on cheaper basses it tends to be too high..You can always make low action higher but other way around is often difficult smile.gif

String spacing depends on the scale of the neck..You can find 4 string basses with strings closer together.

If you want to play metal, 5 string bass is a better solution. Don't worry about it, you can anyway play it, it is not that hard.
