I've been without a 6 string bass since I sold my Roscoe SKB 6 close to 4 years ago. Bass sounded pretty great except for a over agressive Low B string. And then there's the factor of the bass ergonomics. It just hangs in a strap in a super uncomfortable position and hangs neck heavy. I'd buy a Zon 6 string, and almost did except that i have 3 Zons already....fretted and fretless single and dual coil basses covered. Time and time again, I play MTD USA basses and think they're dynamite.I don't like hte headstock design but the sound is perfectly balanced and has a crisp and clear vibe that I look for in a bass. So in short, I'd love to own one. But the price tag.....aarrgghhh . My Roscoe SKB6 new was 2599.00 And it seems that a new MTD 635 can't be had for less than $3400.00 and I've gotten quotes up to 4 grand depending on wood options. So my first question is ...how much should a reatiler be selling a new MTD 635 for ? Next item.I used to own a Spector USA 5 string bolt on. Pretty nice bass. The 6 string version sells for 2 grand. The only thing tht bugs me about the bass besides the black headstock is that there's no midrange EQ control. That's so important when I'm recording. So how about buying the Spector NS-JH6 and adding the EMG midrange boost ? Is the MTD worth $1500.00 more to you guys? I think it might be but it would be good to hear your thoughts.
