Hey all, I sold my old 5 string years ago for 4 strings only because I was in a working rock band. Years later, I'm playing in church and am trying to incorporate more upper register chording, and cello/french horn style solo snippets to fill in. My American Standard Jazz 4 string has been my work horse for ten years and has nice growl due to the ash body. I still have a 1984 G&L L2000, and a 1996 20th Anniversary MM Sting Ray - both 4strings. I'm thinking about selling the Jazz and looking for a 6 string. The money from the Jazz, and maybe some other gear would have to fund a used 6string. Would I miss my Jazz - especially when subbing for rock band situations? The G&L rocks, but the preamp noise has too much hiss to be used at church. I'd rather not use the MM on a regular basis to keep it's value up. Last thought: I'm 6'4" and would look silly with a tiny bodied Ibanez. I need something larger. Thoughts? Thanks.
