    I've been interested in a sixer, and I'm pretty close to buying an Ibanez GSR206. I tried one at a store recently, and I quite liked it. I'm pretty limited with budget as well. Any opinions on that bass?

    I owned it for a while just to start off with a six stringer. I didn't like the string spacings. The neck seemed too flat for me, wide but flat. When setup nicely, it plays fine. Maybe you should wait till you have enough for a SR506, instead of buying a GIO.
     
  3. I have one. Got it to try a six stringer. Surprisingly good for the price.

    I've got one as well. To me, it feels great and plays well. My only complaint is with the pickups. Everything sounds good, except the 'B' string. It seems much quieter, no matter what I do. I think it's an issue with the pickups, as acoustically, the B is prominent like the other strings. Been shopping for pickups lately, ordered a pair of Lace Alumitone BassBars, but they've been on backorder for a couple weeks. As soon as I get a refund, planning on a pair of SGD's. This bass should kill after that!
