I worked pretty hard this year, so I decided it was time to reward myself by adding a five string back to my stable. Wife agreed with me, so I picked up this little beauty from James at The Perfect Bass: A Sky Blue EBMM Stingray 5! James is a great guy to work with, and gave me a great deal on the bass. I ordered the bass yesterday, it shipped out yesterday afternoon, and FedEx dropped it off today (WOW!) Anyway, blah blah blah. I know why you clicked on this link: Photos don't do this color justice, 'specially with my crappy iPhone pics. It has a nice pearl shine when in direct light. This is my first EBMM, and everything I've ready about their quality seems to be true. I definitely feel like I got more than my money's worth with this one!
