    There's one at Basspalace.com right, a very, very sweet looking 6er.

    Actually, I thought about buying it, but ended up with a Spector 5er. Go figure.

    actually, i used to hang out w/ted quite often when i was at osan. he's a very nice, stand-up guy.

    as for the basses, they really are very nice for the money. they feel and sound great. my only problem with the lower end basses is that they look like lower end basses (i know, go figure:rolleyes: ), although that doesn't affect their sound.

    i was planning on getting a neck-through before i left, but i ended up leaving sooner than expected (2 months) due to a family emergency, and i ended up not going back. the neck-through basses sounded great, and looked so much nicer than the bolt-ons.

    imo, they are worth the price by far...

    Does? I haven't played it, but a fully spaced 6er that looked nice was what was drawing me in.

    There was no life in the tone. I don't remember the brand of P'ups. It was pretty fugly up close. The glossy neck was also a turn off for me. The hardware appeared to be a chunk of punched alluminum.

    That other 6 they got in recently, Blubond Special 6, is probably the best sounding/playing 6 I've ever touched.
