Yeah I play a 4 string now, tuned BEAD...but it's kind of getting old, I feel there's not enough room to be creative. I've wanted a 5 string for awhile, but I've decided to take the plunge...I want a 6 string for my next bass, so I can practically play anything I want, you know? I won't be limited. Cuz in my band a lot of the songs are fast, and easy to play on a 4 string, but I want to start to get into stuff that's not just the fast heavy shxt. Any good suggestions? I was thinking of checking out a Dean Edge Q6, they look nice, and they're only $560 in MF.
