    My current bass is Cort Gb35A and from now on i will play some progressive music like dream theater and this cort has a bad B string and string spacing is not for speed ...
    A6 has small string spacing and i think a6 will be much comfortable for some parts of progreessive bass lines.

    What do you think is this replacement good way to go ?

  3. If you refer to the Artisan, it's a decent bass for the money as long as it entails the bartolini pickups and preamp. I've heard that the newer ones are equipped with Mity Mite, which I don't like.
  4. No.

    I owned the A6 with the bart pups. It sounded great but the
    bridge saddles were a totally bad idea because of movement
    which caused vibration and the machine heads were of poor
    quality. Also the 2 truss rods in the neck were one big hassle
    and the weight of the A6 was ridicuously heavy.

    Get a musicman. you won't regret it.

  5. A musicman? It might be just me but musicman basses dont have the fastest necks out there either. Id go for a euro spector or an ibanez. There are a lot of close spaced fast necked 5's and 6's out there.
