    So... My Squier is dieing. It's sad. I really got attached to that bass. It is the sound in my head. But it's so noisy and not worth getting fixed. I want a 6-string too! :) Anyways, I would like you guys/girls to provide your 2 cents on quality sixers. I like a very flexible tone. I'm a one-bass kind of guy. I don't dig grindy rock tone, but then I can't think of a lot of sixes with that vibe. I really like the Wooten tone, but when I get close to that I find it doesn't sit in the mix well. My favorite tone is not a very present one. It's very clear, almost jazz-guitar like, but obviously more in the bass range :). Anyways, this post is long enough. I know you guys are going to say try everything, and I will. I just like to hear outside opinions.

    p.s. Price range is definitely under $2000. Preferably around $1000. Basically new Carvin kind of pricing. (I have been considering that option. I did seem to like the 5 I tried at Bass Emporium.)

    From what you've suggested I'd say a Yamaha, you can't go wrong with their sixers.

    Apparently nickg1823 and I are in the same market... Sorry about the excessive post. If you don't mind I'd still like to hear from all of you though. I'll keep reading his.
