    Carvin. USA Made, neck through, custom made with the options you want. Quality and construction is on another planet compared to the ones you listed.

    +1 on carrots!

    You have picked three of the most amazing 6 string basses on the planet in that price range! I own a KS burner 6 and it's Astounding. So are the BTB basses. (lots of positive opinions here in TB) And while I've not played an LTD bass, if my guitar is any measure, those will be an astounding instrument as well.

    Hence "best bass" is a really dumb question.

    They are ALL 6 string "best basses"! The question is which one appeals most to you and best fits your usual music. Hence "which one to buy'" is a question I can't answer for myself not having played the LTD (yet), so how can we answer it for you?

    My main 6 string is a Modulus, but it's only in the price range of the others if you find one used (as I did).
     
  8. Depends. For metal?

    Hey, all great picks here!
    I know for me what's most important is which one I'm most comfortable with and there's a lot to that. Not only is it which one feels the easiest to play (which will want me to play it more), weight, controls and something else I can't explain. Some basses seem to magnify my mistakes while others seem more forgiving. Play each of them if you can - then decide and good luck!

    I own a 1305 btb and its the best bass i've ever played, and everyone that hears it thinks it's amazing. It's very versatile too. My vote is the btb, but your tastes may differ.

    The Ibanez BTBs are amazingly versatile. I own and play a fretted and fretless BTB 676 and play everything on them. The 776 is just as awesome. The body shape is easy to get around on and allows access to the upper register without any problem. The EQ and pups are actually really reliable and sound awesome. Go for the BTB you will not be disappointed at all.
