need advice on getting a new 6 string bass
Hi y'all I'm looking at getting a new 6 string bass to replace my current electric. I play an Ibanez SR506 (the old school turquoise one) that I put some active EMG soap bars in to beef up the sound. She sounds fine and plays decently but its time I upgraded. I play a mix of everything from rock to blues to jazz to country to metal. Currently I'm playing for a red dirt country band and a black metal band. I use a mark bass littlemark3 with the new York 15" +tweeter cabinet. I hook up an EQ and an EBS preamp to kick up the sound for both my upright and.my electric. The sound I'm searching for is a smoother sound similar to Duffs in GnR or the Daughtry bassists in their September song. But I also do slap and chiming so some clarity is also nice.
I'm looking to spend some cash and get either a custom or a high end sixer. So far I really like the looks of Mayones. I don't have the money to get a fodera otherwise I'd be playing one. I have played the Ibanez BTB 6 and I like the feel of its neck but the body isn't so nice looks wise IMHO. Thanks for bearing with me through this post. I would appreciate any input on any six string models custom builders or standards. Size is no problem I like heavier basses.
