    Musicians Friend has red and green ones on clearance right now for $199.00 with case. See peavey bass sale thread towards the middle to end of it.You could find out who bought one and ask them what they think.

    Ive had one for about 4yrs now...stock except for strings and straplocks.
    The good: tones are abundant, pre is pretty quiet (not to the level of my Cirrus), action can be made pretty good, hardware is solid, good balance, neck is comfy (to me, at least), decent woods, good looks (IMO)
    Only big bad: B is pretty floppy w/ all strings I've tried when tuned down to B...tune it up w/ some tension and it gets noticably better.
    I keep it as my only 5er just so I have one when somebody asks for it...doesn't mean I have to go "all the way down there" ;)
    For the current $199 w/ the case you can't beat it, IMO.
    Is there better out there? Yes.
    For 2 bills? I don't know where!

    just noticed the original question was regarding the 6 not 5 :rolleyes: ...
    I've also laid hands on one of them as well...still the same report :p

  5. A friend of mine bought one and I kept his bass for few days at home....
    Very good bass for the price, the preamp is cool and the playability is correct!
    U won't be disappointed....

    Hope you like tight string spacing! ;)

    It's a good bass, though. I'm happy with mine. It's always good to have a six to goof around on.

    I have a fourstring of it as a beater bass. It does the job well, especially for the price.

    Tight spacing dosent bother me so much.Cant be nearly as bad a Samick 6 I played.That was aweful. If I can get enough room to pop then its good enough.
