The 5-string bass has an interesting history - the first actual "bass" instrument that used five strings was Fender's short-scale Bass V, introduced in 1965. It was never very popular, and the 5th string (C) was added above the high G, unlike the modern low B string. It wasn't until the '70s when boutique builders such as Alembic and Tobias introduced the 5-string bass as we know it today.
