Should I go with a V2 six string?

  1. Gahh, I just saw that the Brice V2 six strings are down to $200. I know a lot of you really like your V2s, but I'm a little bit leary of buying a bass without trying it first. What would you compare the feel of the bass to? Soundgears, maybe? Also, how tight are the B strings on the fives and sixes? I was thinking of getting a Zbass 6 string, but they cost another $140. This is my first six string, and I'm not 100% sure I'm going to like sixers, so I figure $200 is a pretty small investment. Any suggestions?
     
  2. I would say get it. I'm gettin one too and it will be my forst 6'er
    200 bucks is a SMALL investement you got nothing to lose

    I'm shopping around for a 6 string myself.

    IMHO you'd be much better off saving another $100-200 and buying a used Ibanez SR406.

    I'm not overly fond of the Ibanez tone, the B string on the SR's are somewhat loose feeling and require a delicate touch, but the necks make them quite easy to play for a 6 string bass. They aren't too gerthy at all. The price tag on them is also more than affordable. Ive been seeing them for as low as $299 and no higher than $399. IMO they arent the best 6 out there, but they are better than the Brice. One other thing to remember, you get what you pay for.

    Happy hunting.
