    what are your opinions for the best 6 string bass for under $2000? That's my budget, and a 6 stringer is really my taste.

    Woohoo!!
    With $2000 I would buy:

    -Modulus Quantum 6 (With Bartoini´s and 3 Band EQ)
    -Warwick Streamer LX 6 String BroadNeck
    -Warwick Thumb Bolt-On 6 String Broadneck

    My Choices.

    I know I've mentioned it a billion times, but i got a Deluxe Bolt-On Elrick 6 for 1500 bucks. If you buy used, you can get some AWESOME deals.
     
  4. My personal faves under $2000 are the Modulus Quantum and the Czeck (spelling?) made Spector basses.

    I'd try to find a used Alembic, just about any model. For instance, the Epic is an awesome 6 and can often be had for as low as a grand on EBay.

    I also happen to know where a used Warwick Streamer LX6 Broad Neck was residing recently for the price of $2100, if that sort of thing floats your boat. Only Warwick I've ever really REALLY liked playing, too.
