I can't do a search because both "6" and "six" are too short for the search bot to recognize. Sorry. I'd like to try my hand at playing a sixer. What's a good cheapish sixer to try out? I played an Ibanez BTB 5 string that I liked the tone of, because it was majorly versitile. I read that these are passive? I'm thinking no way, it had so much tonal range and super-hot pickups. Is it really passive? I know about Brice, but I want something that is upgradeable if I desire to do so. Someone reccomended Dean six stringers to me, are those any good? Thanks!
