'K, I bought bassdr's Peavey Axcelerator 6, and I'm highly impressed. I've been playing mostly 5 strings for a while, but I wanted to try an Axcelerator, and the rest is history. I'm not sure how much use the C string is going to get. The bass as a whole sounds so good, though, that I'm going to figure out what to do with all these strings. I had a Dean Q6 before, and it really wasn't too exciting . This bass, however, just sounds like a really good bass that happens to have more than four strings. Guess I just wanted to share or something.
