    Alright, lets see what everyones favorite 6 is and why. Pics are good too, because we all love them so...

    My personal fav is my Modulus Q6. Great neck, great tone. Comfortable for playing out and have never had any instability problems. However, if I could only afford my *true* favorite 6 of all time...

    My fretted US Curbow Int'l Petite:

    Currently at Curbow's shop having the Purpleheart/Ebony neck replaced with a Rockwood/Rockwood fretless neck. The neck will be lined, but it's black lines on a black neck, so you won't be able to see the lines more than a foot, or two, away.

    I'll be having it set up with TI Jazz Rounds. I have them as the lower strings on my fretless 8 string, and they sound amazing on the Rockwood fretboard.
