Finally decided to move onto 6 string basses which would be my main bass for pretty much until i get rich and that is not going to be any time soon, however, there is a problem: local stores do not have any in my price range, thus i will have to order it from abroad or to go abroad to buy them...
So I would like to ask you guys from tips on 6stringers
In general: price range 600~700euro, for playing prog. metal/tech.death & jazz fusion. Mostly using finger style & playing bridge pickup only(it must be humbucker) with boosted mids.

Currently got my eyes on Ibanez SR506, Ibanez SR706 & Peavey Grind.
So mates what do you think about these basses? And if you got any other options in your mind, please post them

Can you not order them off the net and have them delivered?

^That, you get em cheaper (mostly) from internet. Specially if you get used one from Ebay for example

Due to fact that most likely i will be ordering it from interwebs I am asking your opinion here, as i wont be able to touch it before buying.

I would take the peavey grind. ESP make some really nice 6 string bass's, but my favorite bass's with 6 strings are defiantly yamaha's, i ve tried a load of different ones and they've all been great.
Yamaha TRB1006
Fender MIA jazz bass
Hora Hybrid double bass
Hartke lh 500
Ev 606L

Judging by a lot of people's opinion, you can't go wrong with an Ibanez Soundgear

I have the ESP D6 and it's damn sexy.


I got mine from Thomann for about £300, worth every penny. I'd definetly get it set up professionally at first though.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

You should def check out schecter basses. They have alot of 6 string models and in my opinion are one of the most comfortable and good sounding basses too.
Here's a link.
http://www.schecterguitars.com/

I Play a schecter stilletto custom 5 string, and i love it. It also comes in 6, so check it out, i guarantee you will like it

And its $600 USD for a new one if that helps.
