Still crazy, after all these years, I am considering going to a 6 string. I have had this bug before and got over it, but this time I think I am going for it. I love my 5 string corvette standard and was considering getting a 6 string version of that bass. I am not sensitive to the weight in the slightest. I looked at the thumb and I actually prefer the sound of the corvette, but that just a personal preference. My question is: If you were going to spend $1,500\$2,000 on a six string bass would you have arrived at the same conclusion or is there something better to consider?
