A five string bass guitar is extremely popular nowadays. But they weren’t the original design. Sometime in the 1970’s there were some high-end manufacturers such as Alembix and Tobias that tested the market by offering five string bass guitars. They were characterized by a low “B” string. Also called an extended range bass, they became popular over time and are now widely sold.
