Well, I have played 6 strings for awhile now, and they are Great, I do really need the extended range for the wierd kinda music I play. But I still would like a Nice 4 banger. I have been a long time advocate of "Six strings, 24 Fret's" and I want a completely different thing, with not a Modern but Not a Vintage tone... And im gonna go off of the "Needed 24 frets" for this one... Something completely different from my other basses. The bass I currently play is a Peavey Cirrus 6 string with Redwood top... For some reason I just feel at home on this bass... I picked it out over Modulus, Zon, F bass, alembic, Roscoe, elrick, Pedulla and Fodera's... I dont know why but when I picked it up I didnt want anything else... The only problem with it is that I cant slap/pop on it with its close string spacing and my fat hands. So Im thinking of a Pure Slap/pop bass... And a Peavey Cirrus 4 banger isnt the answer... So here are some conciderations... Musicman MIA Fender Jazz Warwick Streamer or other Wick. Nordstrand Elrick So far the most prevelent one seems to be the Musicman... Come on.... Dave LaRue.... But seriously, its a 180* turn on what I usually pick, so it seems like exactly what I want... Anyone else run into the same thought patern About getting out of "The Norm"?
