I will probably be looking to buy a 6 string bass in the distant future and was wondering what would be the best one, whilest keeping price in mind.

Basically what is the best cheap 6 string bass?

Something from Rondo would probably be a good start. The brice ones are pretty nice

Cheapest you're probably going to get is a Yamaha RBX-JM. Which are around...£500ish?

edit: Forgot about rondo. But then, i've never played any of them!

The cheapest decent 6 string I've seen is the Ibanez SR506 or a used Yahama RBX model. Both of them will run you between 650 - 750 USD.

Only 600 USD!!! My 5 string is pretty reliable and the bass (natural or red satin) is very sexy.

The Ibanez, Schecter, or Yamaha will all do nicely. The main difference between them will come down to the woods and how they affect the sound and the playability. Cause all of them are essentially modern basses with active electronics and mid priced pups.

how can a 270 dollar 6-string bass be any good

I can't believe you are whoring yourself out like that.

I got my six string last saturday, after the good advice of these gentlemen I settled on a Cort A6. The retail price is about £800 but I managed to get mine for 500 so it pays to shop around.

I have a Brice 6-string fretless. It was supposed to be a back-up bass. I threw a new bridge on it and it ended up being my main bass. People who play it are surprised how cheap it was. Though, it has hybrid active/passive pick-ups, which sound like crap on active. I just keep it as passive, which has added bonus that the active/passive switch now acts as a kill-switch.
