Approx. 8-9 months ago I made the plunge from 5 string to 6 string. I sold my Roscoe LG 3005 and purchased a Roscoe 3006. It actually started out promising but about 1 1/2 months into it I panicked and sold the 6 and got back into another Roscoe LG 3005. Switch back and forth from my 5s to my 6 just felt uncomfortable. Then a strange thing happened, the LG 3005 I purchased sounded much thinner than I remembered the 3006 sounding. It also just wasnt as fun to play as the 3006. Three months ago I sold my Elrick and purchased another Roscoe SKB 3006 and Im happy to say that the transition is complete. So complete that Ive actually had to force myself to play my 5 strings! Well another Roscoe 3006 came available this week (different pre and wood combinations than my existing 3006) and I couldnt resist! A local player was desperately looking for a Roscoe LG so I sold him mine and bought the 3006. I guess the old saying If at first you dont succeed, try, try, try again applies to basses also! The bottom line is that I gave up just a bit too early the first time I tried the 6 string. I hope that this thread will serve as encouragement to someone else making that transition from 5 to 6. Heres a pic of the 3006 coming my way.
