    Ibanez SR406 is a good bass for under 500. I like mine a lot;)

    Hmm I wa slookin for a cheap 6 for awhile myself. Ibanez 406 or 506 would bea good choice- 406 new. used or a 506 used. There might still be one for sale in the classifides here on TB. Cort curbow's are pretty decent if you don't mind a synthetic bass- they sell for around $550 new, but much cheaper used. Yamaha isn't a bad choice either. Rondo should have some Brice's back in stock for just under $300 in a month or two. That's all i can think of at the moment...

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I have no stakes in this game and Embellisher is not paying me commission, but, for $350.00, you would be stupid NOT to buy that bass from him!

    THAT is a hell of a deal!

    It sounds so darned good through my new Peavey BAM combo, that if it doesn't sell this time around I am keeping it. It is now a very serviceable backup for my Cirrus 6.
