been away for a while, haven't played much since january. in that time i've decided i'm ready for a passive fretted, and something with extended range. in my stable: 1) schecter c-4 with cs/dc and emg 3 band preamp 2) sterling single h 3) spector ns2-a w/emg's 4) sx fretless p/j (all passive) the schecter was recently strung to BEAD - hate it, back to standard. i really liked having the low b, and didn't realize how much i use the g and couldn't live without it. then, what i'm hearing in my head for a couple of songs needs a c added for chording. then, i can't get the p or j tone i want out of any of these, so i also want to have something passive. so i'm thinking......it seems going straight to a 6 makes sense, except the squier affinity jazz 5 gets half of the extended range i'm seeking, is passive, AND is cheap as all get out. is there a decent low priced passive 6 on the market? or a nice active 6 similar in used value to a used ebmm sterling? i could satisfy my passive tastes by putting the reverend p in the parts bin into the spector. rambling out some thoughts from the last few weeks. i can't justify adding 2 more basses.
