Since NYS screwed me out of my EIC (thanks Gov'ner!), I've decided to make the jump to a cheap six with the cash I DID get. Narrowed it to these two: Douglas: http://www.rondomusic.com/product1623.html About $200 shipped Rogue Scratch N Dent: http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product?sku=519246X $179, free shipping The Douglas has soapbars, and a super cool trans-blue finish. The Rogue has dual singles, and one review said it could only use one pickup or the other. I could likely rewire it. It has an active/passive push/pull knob; the Douglas does not, though I could likely add that as well if I wanted to. The Douglas is 34" scale, while the Rogue is 35" scale. I REALLY like the D'Addario half wounds on my 4 (BEAD), but they don't offer a 35" six set. I'm seriously leaning toward the Douglas though. Thoughts? Thanks!
