    Ok, there's been a ton of dialog here about the Essex basses, but what about the Brice 6 strings? Anyone try one?
  2. Instead of starting a new thread, I'll bump this one.

    I was looking at the Brice 6 strings, too. The price is well within my range (I was loking to spend $750 -$1000). But since it would be my first 6er, I thought going cheaper would be more easily justifiable.

    They look nice, and although I would prefer a neck through for more stability, beggars cant be choosers, and neither can those on limited budgets.

    Anyhow, I have an Essex I bought from Rondo, and it has become my new favorite. If the Brice is comparable in quality, it should be a nice first 6er.

    Ahhh, me like this one!

    the brice is the upper class of the essex

  4. I own the Brice 6 string fretless. It's a well built bass...the only problem I have with it is the electronics. The thing sounds like pure mud. Not a good tone out of it yet. If you plan on upgrading the pickups and electronics, you can't go wrong. (IMO)
