Nope. That bass is overpriced. Price quotes are for supporting members but I wouldn't offer him more than $300 for the package.
Personally I do not care for the 5/6 string offerings of the SR line. I think they have a below average B string and owning one bass with a bad B string can steer somebody from ever owning another one. On the other hand, you probably won't find a good starter 6 string with a good B string, so it wouldn't hurt to try a 6 for a few months and upgrade it if you are enjoying the 6, sell if you aren't.
