    :help: So i'm looking into getting my "next bass." :hyper: The problem is I'm trying to decide between three different basses.
    They are in my current favorite order:

    1.) http://www.guitarcenter.com/Fender-American-Deluxe-Jazz-Bass-V-5-String-Electric-Bass-105913719-i1520297.gc

    2.) http://www.guitarcenter.com/Music-Man-Stingray-5-HH-Electric-Bass-515512-i1148708.gc

    3.) http://www.guitarcenter.com/ESP-LTD-B-206SM-6-String-Bass-108588302-i1323877.gc

    I currently play a Fender MIM Jazz Bass which is why the Jazz bass is currently my favorite. Another reason i'm looking at the Fender, is the contoured heel, I like to play high up every once in a while. I like the broad range of sounds you can get out of a jazz bass, the problem is i've never so much played a MM. I like the idea of the six string but I just don't know exactly how much I'd even need that extra string. I'm in a band that plays mostly heavy rock type music.

    So I guess really my questions are 1.) Do you have any experience with any of the three basses? 2.) Between the Jazz and the Stingray, which would you choose? 3.) If you play any sort of heavier type music do you play a six string? would you?

    Any help here would be great!
    (*Disclaimer* I understand that about 99% of whether or not a bass fits for one person is personal preference. But I am at least trying to get all the information I can before I decide. Thanks again!)
