Well, the most famous one is the Fender 6 String bass, so id go with that. Its not that expensive, however i believe it is now collectors, so good luck finding one.

A 6 string bass is a guitar tuned an octave down, with bass pups.

a six string bass is tuned an octave lower, and with a regular guitar your strings would sound all "not working" cuz they wouldnt be working.

incorrect, the tuning of a 6-string bass is actually BEADGC low to high. also, the schecter stiletto studio-6 is what im getting and its amazing for any music.

Actually, most 6-string basses are tuned to a high C instead of a high B, that way all strings are tuned at the perfect fourth.
