    I know this has been asked before and I've searched this site and really didn't find much. But I have narrowed my 6-srting choice down to an F-Bass BN6 or an MTD 635 maple top/ash body. Anyone here have any experience with these basses and what is your practical experience/opinion with each. Please let me know, ready to order within the week.
     
  2. I played a really nice BN6 this past weekend. It had a super comfy neck, and the 19mm string spacing really didn't make the neck "feel" that wide. It sounded really good. In fact, so good, and so polar to the Dingwall, that I am seriously considering getting it, in fact I almost picked it up that day, but I thought an F bass and a Dingwall on the same day? That's crazy. The price is right on it too.

    I haven't played a 635, but I think either way, you can't really lose.
