hi all. last time i made a thread, i had just bought my Conklin GT7 (which i love). that was around 5 months ago. i now have some more money, and decided that i need a backup for this beauty, so i dont have to take it to my rougher gigs. i am looking for a six, but if i find a five string that i like, i will take that. as of music, i play in a classic rock/progressive metal band (very heavily influenced by DT), i play in a jazz band, and in a solo bass funk group. i tap, slap, need low end, and bright highs. yea, i may be a little demanding, but i need something reliable. i have been looking at the ibanez BTB 406, the ibanez 506, schecter stilleto studio 6 (i have had some really good experiences with schecter in the past), and the tobias toby pro (musicyo.com). any opinions on any of these basses, or suggestions within my price range would be greatly appreciated. thanks again, Jon lastly, if anybody knows how much the new john myung bass costs, it would be much appreciated.
