Ok guys so my grandma is here visiting and my mom told me she wants to buy me something and asked her to suggest something but she didn't know what and asked me. So I told her I really want a six string bass. Now, I don't know how much my grandma is willing to pay or if she'll even buy a bass for me but assuming she does, I want something under $500 since I don't want her to have to spend a fortune. I really would love to have a fretless 6er, but I can't seem to find one that cheap. I know deans are good, and I've heard some good stuff about the peavy grind 6. I'm going for a natural wood finish (NO PAINT!) so the peavy would be good. I've been searching ebay lately, god forbid I know, but figured why not. Any comments on this bass - http://cgi.ebay.com/Electric-6-stri...itar?hash=item1c0c577f82&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14 ? The only thing about it tough, is it doesn't say what the scale length is. I absolutely refuse to play a 6 string 34". It has to be 35" or higher. I also found this one which I trust more than the previous one, http://cgi.ebay.com/Brice-HXB-406-N...itar?hash=item5ad3718991&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14 And finally, this fretted cort curbow - http://cgi.ebay.com/Cort-Curbow-6-S...itar?hash=item1c0cc3a9e0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14 My only concern with this one however, is under color it says "imitation burled walnut". So does that mean that it's not actual burled walnut nut and some kind of printed on thing? Thanks so much in advance! Please reply soon.
