Well. First things first. I've been playing bass for nearly 3 years now. I've had ONE bass through it all, and i'm getting my Geddy lee. But after that, what should I get? I don't mean to sound to "Jaco-esque" but i'm the baddist at my school. I feel horrible saying that, but my teacher refers to me as Jaco JT if you're reading this, you'll like this. But 4 isn't enough, and I don't like 5's. I want to go 6. At a music store I worked at, we have a Groove Tools 7-string. I LOVED it. It was the best bass I have ever played. Does Groove Tools make 6-strings? Conklin is too expensive for me. Also, if I can't get a 6, should I just goto 7? I mean i want to challenge myself. Gah! Please help! PS. i LOVE The Ibanez BTB-6 as well.
