I'm a big fan of the "old-style" 6-string basses,AKA tic-tac basses or BassVIs. I've got a Gretsch SynchroBassVI(w/Bigsby), and a Jerry Jones Longhorn BassVI. I've owned another Jones BassVI, and a Fender BassVI reissue. Anyone else here play one? NuggetsII has a few cuts by bands with both 4 and 6 string bass players and the bass sound is amazing.
