I've been playing a Y2K Stingray pretty much exclusively for two years, and with a GK stack it was great for metal, but is a bit too shrill for my tastes, starting to mellow out a little, and the thing is heavy (I'm recovering from abdominal surgery) so I'm looking about going back to something more basic. I love Precision basses, and I was actually planning on buying a '77 Precision for $699 (remember way back when) instead of my Stingray for that price. But the store sold *MY* Precision the day before I arrived to buy it, and walked with the Ray instead. I was pleased, it was better for me then, but my tastes have changed. I'm tossing around the possibilities of swapping the Ray for a late 70's Precision (of course I'd need cash involved, my Ray is no prize pig ... it was a player, chipped here and there, dirty, etc) or maybe a Roscoe Beck V... The RBV is appealing to me for that Fender vibe, plus the low B string, seems to be more ergonomic and comfortable with the asymmetrical neck with a huge variety of tones, while still being passive. I love my Ray, but it's not making me passionate to play anymore (plus I have to get up and move to play bass since I moved my gear to my basement "studio") so I'm thinking about jazzing up the rig and going more vintagey. What do you think?
