    after alot of looking, chaning minds, saving, and spending saved money i finally decided on a new bass and bought it, the newest piece of my equipment a used but mint condition Alvarez 6 string ($379 in case anyone would care) , i wasnt thinking of making the switch from 4 to 5 let alone 6 but i picked it up for fun one day and it was great the neck was more comfortable than most 5er's ive played and the b alot tighter. its a kinda orange see through color that sounds really ugly when thrying to explain it but it looks good wen you see it. besides being comfortable and a tight b the main reason i bought it was cuz it had 2 bartolini j pickups in it already and a 2 band active eq which sounds great. so far im really happy with it but ive had it about 3 hours now so well see how it is with a real band (and the other half my amp) and ive acctually found 6 strings to be pretty comfortable so far, but im not sure of the make and model of the bass they dont have one that looks like it on any sites ive gone on so i might get a pic of it on sooner or later so hopefully someone could tell me the modle and year possibally
