Who's got a Brice sixer?

    I've got a Peavey Axcelerator 6, which is wonderful, but I'm thinking of a Brice as a backup/alternate/practice/beater bass. Anybody got one? How is it?
     
  2. I bought a Brice fretless 6 last fall. Kurt usually peddles them for $269 on eBay, but for some reason he had a few at $199. Needless to say, I jumped on it.

    When I received it, it had a good deal of string buzz at around the 3-4th "fret", but a touch of counterclockwise on the truss rods fixed me right up. I'm guessing _maybe_ it got sold, then returned, thus re-sold for the $199. Hmmm.

    I still haven't yet got it in to the shop for a "real" setup - I'd like a bit more "mwah" out of it, so I suspect I need the neck tilt adjusted a skosh. However, for overall sound and playability, not to mention the pretty good looks, it's awful hard to beat.

    Cheers,
    Pete

    I'm planning on buying one just to mess around with sometime in the next 5 or 6 months unless I can get something better (like your Peavey) for a similar price.

    As it turns out, after I posted this, I found a Cort Curbow 6 in Burl fake Walnut or whatever it's called (I like it) for $299 in "like new" condition. It's on its way to me now.
