I've heard the B-string can be ... difficult. Flabby and undefined, I suppose. Especially on low-end models. Would a 35" scale give more definition on the B? No experience myself; just things I heard when I considered a 5er.

Does that make things easier or just more complicated?

Before I got my Fender J-5, I was dreaming of a Carvin 5-string thru-neck and Koa body. That's why I play the lottery!
