Just ranting... I'm really jonesing to try one of these out.
Of course you are GASing. That one looks just like the one I recently bought. I wandered into Sam Ash Store needing another 6 string like a hole in the head. Spotted B206-SM. "Hey, I thought, that looks just like my Spalted Maple Bass Mods 7 string (that cost nearly a grand used!)
And then I tried it. Typical active modern tone. Not bad. I love Ash body basses anyway. But killer looks, and the NECK! Yowza! Best factory neck ever. And the price, a tad over four bills. BRAND NEW! I KNEW i simply could not live without it!
So you SHOULD be kicking yourself! These are such an amazing bass for the money that I even bought it new (which I rarely do). The Ash body is a tad heavy, but tone is terrific and i wasn't going to step up to a grand to get the mahogany body (which while much more expensive is also a massive killer bargain compared to similar boutique basses).
So keep your eyes open for that deal on one of these 6ers. These ARE worth Jonesing for!
(just doing my TB part to feed the GAS)
