i am planning on building a 6 string bass this summer and looking through the forum and the internet at parts i have a few questions,

1- would a 6 string bass need two truss rods?
2- is their any place on the web where i can buy six string necks? i don't really want to make my own... (inexperience)

lastly does anyone have any suggestions or specific advice to building a 6 string bass?

I don't know where you live, but where i live it's pretty rare to find a 6 string neck anywhere (even online/ebay/forums), currently on the look out myself. If you don't mind tight string spacing, i'd say buy a wide 5 string neck. Like the Squier Deluxe Jazz V. The nut spacing is 51 mm. I've seen many people turn these basses into 6 stringers. Limme find the link.

Squier 6 string

Sorry, that's the only advice I can give at the moment. I'm still learning about it myself.

Take care.
