I've been getting bored of playing the old 4 strings at home, by myself. In a band situation I can see myself playing nothing else, holding the groove and filling up the sound. However, at home, I like playing around with chords and creating little bass ditties of the sort. I'm thinking a nice 6 string would be a creative release in my off-time. The thing is, I don't want to spend much. I have an American Deluxe J, which is heavenly, a fretless Squier covering my fretless needs (at the moment...), and another J on the way. So I don't exactly want to blow all my money in one shot. Basically, I'd like something easily playable and decent sounding. Preferably, a comfortable neck with many frets and an easily accessed high register. A good, clean sound is a plus. I've been looking at Brice and other such companies... look alright, but I don't really want a cheap feeling or sounding bass. Any suggestions?
