    I know. As much as I love it I just do not need 6 strings. Just because I have a fascination with multiple string basses doesn't mean I should play one. 5 is my limit.

    I completely understand, my pop/variety act means that I need to keep a few 5's. I only own one 6 these days and it is tuned E-F for chordal stuff and performing with other bassists.
