    Well...after weeks of looking/shopping/trying out some different models, I finally bit the bullet and bought a 6-string. Schecter Studio 6. I was very close to getting a Kingston 5 (thanks for the help Gard--you're awesome!) but I just loved the feel/look/etc of this one. Plus it was a good excuse for me to go to a six.

    Advice on going from 5 to 6? So far it feels kinda nice...

    Pratrice, pratice & more pratice. It's not really hard converting from one to the other but if you switch back & forth, you'll probably be looking for the C string that isn't there. :)

    P.S. Really nice bass.:bassist:

    to me it feels smooth. a bit wider, but I'm already working out some basslines that I can use that extra string on--that part will be fun! My problem is I don't have huge hands so it will take some work to get comfortable (but that's the fun part, right?)

    Congrats! I always liked the looks of the nicer Schecters.
