    Pros - Thick and chunky neck, Easy truss rod access, Huge tonal options, Good finish on the neck and the body
    Cons - A bit heavy
    I got this bass as a second hand and it was like a brand new bass. The nice chunky neck made me feel comfortable than playing a thin neck of jazz bass. You can get any tone you want with this. Funky flea sound, mellow ballad tone, or a heavy metal tone. The best part of this bass in my opinion even though there are tons of good things about this bass, is the truss rod access. You dont have to loosen up the strings, unscrew the truss rod cover or remove the neck, You just pop in the allen key and its all set. The neck only have a slight bit of finish on it so your hand doesnt slip around when you play.

    This is the best sounding instrument I've ever owned. A lot of talk about Precisions these days. But if you needed one bass to do it all, this is the one.

    Pros - Monstrous Tone, Awesome feeling Neck, Build quality competes with basses that go for three times the price, Looks amazing, Great sounding 3 Band EQ, Noiseless single coil operation, Note sustain can go for nearly a minute, and it has a cool name!
    Cons - Might be a little heavy for some.
    Ever since I bought this bass, I haven't been able to look at any other bass the same way again! They all began to sound the same to me and could never achieve the killer bite found in the Stingray. Even when they use the same pickup configurations (I'm looking at you Lakland).

    If it means anything to you, the Stingray was used by bass players like Bernard Edwards (CHIC), Tom Hamilton (Aerosmith), Flea (The Red Hot Chili Peppers), Tim Commerford (Rage Against the Machine), John Deacon (Queen), Mark Hoppus (Blink-182), Justin Chancellor (Tool), and so many more! As you can see, by this list of artists, it can play any style of music, (though it destroys any other bass at funk).

    If you have the cash, This bass is a total yes!
