  4. I've got a Dean Edge Q6 in Amberburst. I've replaced the original EMG HZ pick ups with EMG 45-P pick ups and I've replaced the Dean eq with an EMG BTS system. The difference is enormous, the bass went from a great playing, nice sounding bass, to a great playing awesome sounding bass. I've tried a few other 6 string basses, but none of these basses could beat the sound of my improved Dean (and it has the fastest and nicest neck I've ever felt on a 6 string)....

    Here's a picture of my favorite(and only!) 6 string! It is a Warrior Signiture 6 with Mahogany body, Walnut/Purple Heart neck, and Quilted Babinga top. It sounds unbelievable! The Walnut adds a unique hollow midrange to the sound. It is an outstanding bass. It plays like a dream.:D

    I could show you, but then I'd have to kill you.

    :D Nah, it's just that it's so damn ugly it's not worth showing. Just picture yourself a Carvin LB76F in black... all black... VERY black. In fact, the only non-black details on it would be the strings and the print on the headstock.

    I love the fingerboard on my Warrior! It's hard to believe that the "mountain" is actually the natural figure of the wood. The fretwork is astonishing too!:D

  18. Thanks! Snatched that one from coyoteboy. He made me an offer I couldn't refuse. As soon as I strapped that sucker on to try it out, I knew I wanted it.

    Here's a close up of the Zebrawood body:

    Here's my Ken Smith BSR6 GN. Quilted maple top, neck-through, ebony board, etc. An exceptionally balanced sounding instrument that plays and feels fantastic. This one is a year 2000 model.
