    I have been looking at 6- String basses for a while are there any good ones that u would suggest between 600-750 bucks. I looked at many ibanez and the new schecter, are they any good???
     
  2. Cort Curbow 6, you can get these for $500 on ebays ometimes and they are great basses. The Ibanez BTB406 is also a good choice, but Id stay away from the soundgears.

    You may be able to find one of the Quilt Top or Czech Dean Edge series 6 strings for that price also, definitely worth a look.

    I'll second the bit about avoiding the soundgears. Really the floppiest B strings on them, Ibanez should really do something about that.

    As far as I'm concerned anything with the word Schecter on the headstock is worth serious consideration - but that's just me. :)
