I am getting married in a month, so I have not had a chance to go shopping for a new 6 for myself. Wah, I know, especially since I still have been trading basses. Anyways, I have come to the conclusion that even though I don't want to, I am going to sell mt MTD 535 because it never gets played. Pretty much because my R bass was an engagement gift, and its the best and last 5 I will need. So, moving on to a 6, I thought long and hard about what I really want. Although a 6 string Roscoe Thunderbird would be the deal, I have decided a 6 string singlecut is the way to go for me. Plan on having a real nice flame top, and a deep blue stain on it. There is a bolin singlecut floating now that has the color I want (if It had the string spacing I wanted, it might be in my stable now!). So, the two best choices I could come up with is the Nordstrand and the Benevente. Both are in the same price range, with around the same amount of wacky options. The nordstrand would probably take a little longer, but that is the least of my concerns now. Any reason I should go with one or the other? Both of them seem like winners. Here is a pic of the bolin that I want the color of. Not the shape, just the color.
