    I'm looking at getting a cheap six string bass ( I know its really a baritone guitar but I would string it E-E) and Iwas wondering if I would be better of getting this or a cheap sixstring B-C... I really don't want to pay too much, as this is my first experience with a six string, and I will get a nicer one later if I decide that is the path for me.... so any thoughts on the OLP or other cheap sixstrings would be nice, as well as opinions on which to get...

    The MM-3 is the SR5 copy. The MM-5 is the Sillouhette Bass copy.

    The MM-5 is more of a baritone guitar, but it's argued either way. I prefer Ibanez six stringers but he Brices at rondomusic.com aren't bad either.

    If you like shortscales, go for it. I'm seriously contemplating one soon. The only other (new) options are the Schecter Hellcat and the Jerry Jones or a custom build. Secondhand there's also the Fender Bass VI.

    There are more 34" scale options such as the Ibanezes, but I have no experience of them.
