Go ahead, try it out. Just don't do it to the bass you cannot live without.

Ive never tried it, or heard of it, but if you want your bass setup like that, i suggest getting a pro to do it, or speaking to a pro about it.. you will mostly find a bass pro in a big music store (guitar/bass drum store).. and he should be able to help you out with that.. it might cost a fair bit (even so much you might aswell get a new fretless 5 string.. up to you)

The neck of a four string is thinner that the neck of a 5 string. That means that if you do his, you'll have the strings closer together than they are on a regular 5 string. That's bad.
