I'm looking to purchase a 6 string bass sometime soon, but the selection available at the local music stores is very limited. I am tempted to order one off the internet, but I am not very comfortable dropping $1000+ without trying the instrument first. I have looked into used Modulus Q6's, Music Man Bongo 6's, Ken Smith basses, and MTD's. I would really like a Modulus or an MTD 635, but the price is a little much for me. Does anybody know if the MTD Kingston 6 is any good? Any suggestions for quality a six string bass in the $1000 - $2000 price range?
