    I had been thinking about upgrading to a 5 string bass when i stumbled upon this bass on ebay.
    It's a galveston 6 string bass. I did some research and didn't find much on the company. If anyone has some info on this company, or the quality of their instruments, it would be appreciated.

    don't worry, i didn't take it in a bad way.
    I didn't pay a whole lot ( 200 US $ ) so i wasn't expecting anything of exceptional quality

    I was surprised to find a 6 string for that price too, all that waiting finally paid off, i guess
    It has a decent sound
    The single humbucker does a pretty good job with tone varieties.
    The sound is a bit bright, but the graphic equalizer on my amp fixes that.
