    Personally i don’t think it matters.Like the man said its all about what you’re comfortable with.Me personally i like the low B ,but i also play a 6 string so if i want to get down and dirty the low B is there and if i want to solo in the upper registers of the Bass,the high C is there also.Also depends on your imagination.
