    The lightest I can think of would be the Cort Curbow 6, and whats so cool about it is Greg curbow will do cool update on it if you want such as add Barts /Bart preamp or even add a wenge neck or lined fretless ;) .
     
  3. I don't think you'll have much selection with a price range of $450 or less for a 6 string

    yah, the 6 string market is slim under $500, but you may want to look at rondomusic.com . The curbow is a good choice if you can find one used, but the sound isn't very natural.
