    Cool video. I'd say '77 Jazz both pickups.

    The second Music Man (cherry finish) sounds fuller to me.

    Really well done video. For that style of music I like the Warwick Jazzman both pickups the best.

    +1, the '95 Ray. Sounded good, right for the song, no matter what he did to it.

    Really nice! I with more folks would compare basses like that instead of just talking then slapping.

    For that song, I surprisingly liked pretty much all the variations of the 2004 Streamer Jazzman. For overall tone, the P (tone up some).

    Not surprisingly for me, my least favorite was the Jazz followed by the Starbass.

    Excellent playing and thanks for posting that!

    Killer video, first of all. Love the Cherry Ray, the P and the J.

    That was very cool...and some great playing.
    I had never heard/played a Streamer before, but it and the P-bass were my personal favorites.

    For that style I like sound of the permutations of the '95 Stingray best.

    +2 I am a 'Ray fanboy so my vote is no surprise (even though I don't own one yet, just my trusty OLP), but there was no doubt in my mind that the Ray was THE bass for that song.

    Killer video too!

    What a great video!

    For that tune at least, I thought the Starbass was the winner by a wide margin (for what I like). The cherry Ray was really cool too. Funny, I've been a P bass guy most of my life, but it was probably my least favorite on that track :meh:

    Great video!

    I've never liked the Musicman Stingray sound before.

    For me it's the winner here!

    Cool video - for me it was a tie between the Warwick Streamer, and the J, but I think the strings used played a huge role.

    By the way, Pertyman- how is that 'Ray modded?
