    if by "investment" you mean "buy and then sell at a profit", I'd say no. if you mean "I want to have multiple solid bodies to have in different tunings (or whatever)", then I'd say "maybe". If you...

    I don't. I later acquired a "new old stock" fretless California and liked it better enough to let the SUB go. I'm sticking with fretless because I like the sound, and I can fix intonation issues...

    Hmm, I don't have direct experience with those sets but I'd be concerned about the high E string in particular. You might want to stop at FCGD and see how it feels

    The 5th string is reentrant, yes. I am not familiar with Sanz. If I'm reading the chart correctly, that has 2 reentrant strings so probably wouldn't work on the 5 string, but I do have a 6-string...
