    New bass day. Classic Stingray 5. Coral red. Tortoise shell pickguard. Birdseye maple fretboard.



    The local Guitar Center was clearing this out at $500 off. This is the second EBMM bass I have owned - had a pearl blue Stingray 4 H 3EQ a couple of years ago. This is a much nicer instrument, more fun to play. Love the birdseye maple neck/fretboard and hard finish on the neck - a huge upgrade (to me) over the oil/wax finished plain maple on my previous Stingray.

    I have an Aguilar TH350 and DB112NT on the way. Can't wait to hear that setup with this bass.
  2. Nice bass! Love the colour and IMO these look far better then the standard SR5's with their massive pick guards.

    That is just gorgeous! You must be stoked. This week I'll be receiving one of its distant cousins from across the tracks, a Sterling.

    Very, very nice - I LOVE those Classics!!! Although I'm normally a tort fan, I think white pearl would look great on that.... Congrats, and happy NBD...

    Wow... LOVE that bass! Would trade a black pickup for the white one, but other than that... perfect!

    I just got one of these yesterday. I absolutely love it -- It is a phenomenal bass. I somehow lucked out and got a nice light weight one.

    I actually wanted that color combo that you have but they were back ordered. Ended up with black instead. Can't really go wrong with black!
