As many bassist i think the time has come to step to something new, that will allow to dig more stuff n to go more in depth of what "can be" done. The way to do it seemed obvious at first a 6 string bass. After a few weeks of shopping and stuff i have more questions then i had at the beginning. As i am a student my budget aint unlimited, part time job gives what part time jobs gives eh. So far the bass that came up is the Ibanez sr506, there starts the questions, what was your experience with it, how do you like it n blablabla. Also Is there any other bass you would suggest me to consider in that price range. yes i will get answers like" depends what you play n the such, feel free to post them but just take in count that im really open minded, i try to dig as much style/technique/music as i possibly can.
