    I was looking some info about it specially the scale and if possible some clips.

    THX in advance.

    I also am very interested in this bass, so If there is any info out there I'd also appreciate some. :D

    What year model is it? I have a mid 90's SR505 [I know, not a 6 string]. It is 34" scale [the sr506 is the same]. It has the 3 band pre-amp w/Vari mid., 2 decent humbuckers and a nice solid bridge. It is a well made and good sounding instrument. I have recorded with mine many times and got compliments on the sound. SR's are not slap machines although you can slap on them but they have narrow string spacing which is conducive more to finger style playing! I will assume the neck on the 6 [although wider] will have even tighter string spacing than the 5. :cool:

    I bought a new SR-506 about 5 months ago. I don't regret it at all. It's a pleasure to play. The neck plays well and I like the way the bass sounds. For the price, it's well worth it in my opinion.

    34" Scale
    16.5mm spacing
    Bartolini MK1 pickups

    The following link is a song I recently recorded the bass on using the SR-506 with NO external effects or pre-amp. Just the bass straight into my multi-track. It's an unfinished mixed track, but I'll see if I can load a version with just the bass so you can hear it better once I get home from work.


    Have Fun! :bassist:

    Pretty tight. I use it quite a bit in that clip I posted. ;)

    Looks very nice. I am an Ibanez user, however, I don't have the sr506 model, though I would definetly like to try it out. I am actually going to Guitar Center today and trying out a load of basses. I plan on getting another bass to keep at our guitarist's place. If I see the sr506, I will definetly check it out and leave feedback.
