Hi, I want to buy a 6 string (yes.... I know........ Jaco didn't need a 5 or 6 string bass to be best the bassist ever), but I really am scared about this hand size issue, because I want something with wide string spacing - so I can slap as well (I was thinking of a Yamaha TRB6II). Thus, I would appreciate help (from anyone playing 6 string basses, with wide neck, or someone who has tried them before) giving some advice and input (e.g., the size of your hands!!) and if I should even care about this!! Thank you all, for your time and attention... P.S. - I can't try a 6 string bass (with wide neck), because where I live (Portugal) it is really difficult to find them. The close I can get is a Yamaha RBXJM, but, from what I have read, this thing has narrow string spacing.
