Hi friends!

I was looking at getting a new bass in the future, but i'm a little stumped in the decision making progress because I didn't know if it would be detrimental to my learning to get a 6 string bass. I love Thundercat and he's one of my biggest idols when it comes to bass playing, I mean the guy is a legend. Obviously its not the instrument that makes the player, but with the fast lines he's playing all over the fretboard as well as his use of chords I thought having a 6 string would allow me to mimic that style a little in my playing, also I just think they look cool. What do y'all think? as someone between beginner and intermediate would it hinder me to buy a 6 string? if not, are there any which you would recommend?
