Default Any other 6-string Bassists out there???

Hi all. Just wondering if anyone else has moved on up into the world of 6-string basses yet? I found that once I made the transition, my playing skills and versatility improved greatly. I now play lots of things off my 5th fret on the B (the E) instead of the open E string, and my tones are tighter, my playing is faster and much more precise.

Cheers.

That's a sick bass, by the way.

I'm no bassist, but I have seen a 12 string bass... 4 chords of 3 strings each, It scared the hell out of me
