So I've been bothering people for ages on a couple of threads about which bass to get. Anyway, I went down to the London Bass Guitar Show yesterday and saw this - a Musicman Stingray 4HH in natural finish with an ash body. It's the best looking bass i've ever seen and plays fantastically!!! I'm amazed that anyone would suggest not getting a 4hh - this bass is so versatile, the five way selector switch produces 5 completely different sounds! Ordinarily here in the UK a 4hh would cost around £1600 (probably more for the ash), but I got this brand new for £1300 with a free hard case, soft case, leather strap and extra set of Ernie Ball Super Slinky roundwounds. So that's me - the happiest person on the planet right now!
