I'm planning on buying a new bass which would be a 6stringer. I sorta got 1000, but I could slightly go over that. I was thinking about the Ibanez 3006e, but I was wondering if you guys could suggests some other 6'ers for about the same money. I only listen to metal, and I'll probaply only play with/in metalbands, but I'm not your average metalbass player. I like to mix styles and just do my own thing which is some fingerstyle, some slapping, chord stuff.. you name it. oh yeah, and whay should I bew aware of while buying a new bass? my first(and previous) were in a starterskit, but now I'm going for the real deal.
