Hey guys. I'm new around here, so this is my official hello to all of you. *Hello!* Now, I have a question for all you experts here at Talk Bass. I'm looking for a good six string bass. I would like it if the price tag read $1,500 or under. The only perquisites on it would be it being fretted, and the string spacing must be wide enough to allow slap techniques. I just got back from Guitar Center where I tested out an Ibanez SR506. It played good for fingerstyle and tapping, but I wasn't able to pull off very many clean slap bits, like I can on my four string. So, yeah, I'm looking to stay away from over-thin necks. Now, we can let the answers flow.
