I totally understand that our Aussie brother's n sisters always get the jumpstart on the newest Minelab gold detector but our wait in the USA is getting totally ridiculous......

Lets hope you all get a good supply at once, not drips and drabs where the early birds get an unfair advantage while the rest are still waiting for one.

Do you think there is a built up demand?  Can't be more than a few dozen go out the door in the first week, right?  😁

I don`t understand why if someone steps up with the cash early that`s unfair to those who don`t, tis a risk they take and sometimes is rewarded.  Although with ML it is hardly a risk and has always been rewarded, even though they paid a premium in the Zs case and that may prove so also in the 6000s case.

MN I suspect tis all part of MLs marketing strategy, here on DP the 6000 hype has/is dominating big time and why not is only a 5 year happening.

I did put down a deposit a while back, but decided mainly due to financial reasons to turn it into a Equinox for now.  Who knows, maybe I should start posting wanted ads in the near future for a lightly used 6000 instead?

Apparently, you can buy the 6000 online from Dubai. It says in stock. I placed a dummy order and it goes all the way to the payment page...And also cheaper.

Yup. But the 14DD would be missing. Why is there always a catch with everything?🤔

      Hi all, just found on Gumtree Aust a Minelab GPX 6000 for sale. Only the box in the picture. Listed yesterday by Shawn Gib from Sydney. Asking $9000.
      Says your beating the que price is firm. Does anyone know who this is? I take it is a fake so be aware, or someone has one from a dealer? cheers sturt

      Firstly my thanks to the guys at Coiltek.
      After dreadful weather here in central Victoria, and recovering from surgery, this morning dawned clear and sunny. Nice hot coffee and before the dew was off the ground I had the 6000 cranked up. Rudimentary reading of the manual the previous day saw the new detector humming sweetly after a short warm up. JP had been most helpful with a few tips on the local Finders forum, so it was quite easy to feel a certain amount of confidence as I ground balanced and paired up the headphones, which are surprisingly good compared to some of Minelab's previous offerings.
      There is a shallow but substantial lead running west to east across my fifty acre property which yielded a small amount of gold to my GPZ a few years back. I had gridded out the most promising area at the time, so it seemed obvious that this would be a good place to test my new toy. Not bothering to take a pick I headed off towards the east end of the block.
      Where on earth did these signals come from? A number were I am sure just shotgun pellets, but a few were at a reasonable depth as I tilted the coil to get some idea of just how deep. The more interesting signals I marked with boot scuffs and will check out within the next few days. I did not get to go back for my pick as a visitor turned up to have me check his detector.
      Initial impressions; Pretty damned good.

      Six Thousand dollars to put out on anything is a large investment to make .
       I just wonder how many of you have committed yourself to buying the 6000 already?
       I’ve had a long talk with one Minelab dealer and he has been told that the 6000 may slow in coming to the US because of the high volume going to other countries. That’s due to the gold rush is there not here.
       For you that live in gold country it may be a easy discussion but for those of us  that don’t we may have to think about it a while.
       I myself don’t have a bass boat parked in my drive with a big motor and trailer so this year I’m going to be good to me .
       I will have a 6000 as soon as I can get  my hot little hands on one.
       How about you is Santa going to come early?
       The Best!

      8 grammer found at 11 inches.  Nothing special as most detectors PIs should see something that big at that depth, but at least we get to see a big one finally found on film.

      I don't know how many 6000s are already 'in the system' as complete units in the box ready for use but the Covid count in Malaysia is forcing them to shut down some things.

      Be prepared for a long wait with the chip shortage.

      I’m wondering if the double D coil on the 6000 discriminates on metal like the 5000 does?
