How do these basses differ? Can you offer me another 6 string bass within a similar price range? Thanks.

sr506 its for me the best 6 string bass in that range second to the spector legend 6, its very very versatile, it has bartolini mk1 pups nuff said

the main difference between these 2 models is the fact that one uses bartolini (the 506) also it has better wood

Because I keep specs on random bass guitars memorized.


Links?


Google it, it's hardly difficult.

I'm running abit short on time now so I'll review the situation after school.

the 506 has the bartolini MK1 pickups, while the 406 has house brand. The 506 has a mahogany body, the 406 seems to be maple.

I have the 505, it's pretty great. Don't think you can go wrong with it, so I would say the 506 over the 406 for sure

Absolutely. I've tried the SR506 and I recommend it wholeheartedly.

tbh i played the SR506 today, and i wasnt impressed at all. it was actually somewhat awkward to play cause the body's of Ibanez soundgears are so light and the neck was so heavy it made the bass completely horizontal. also, sitting down with it on my right leg it was wobbling back and forth (not from me, its the weight). ill stick with the 6 string ESP im gonna get, the B206SM. wayy more comfortable and evened out. plus IMO it sounded ALOT better than the Ibanez. ANDDD its cheaper. 450-ish instead of the 600-ish range for the Ibanez. If u find the ESP try it out, ull be surprised

Played a 506 today after being HIGHLY disappointed in both an MTD and an American Standard Jazz. The sr506 blew me away for 1. Versatility 2. Light Weight and 3. COMFORT!

I've yet to try the six string model, although I am currently GASing for one and continuosly stalking the adds and forums around here...
I've played the sr505 though. It was really comfy. Not my kind of beast, but man, it played like butter.

really? I just put my 505 on now...and it doesn't dive at all. Does your strap slip a lot?

cause thats the 505. the 5 string one. i own a 405QM and its perfectly balanced

the 506 is a 6 string. and since soundgear bodies are so light, and the neck is so big, it just completely threw it off
