I was playing along with this song, more out of curiosity to see how my current crop of basses would handle this particular bassline, something that I would listen to in my youth. Now, inspire me to buy a particular bass is a bit of a stretch in this case but the bassline was something I thought really sounded cool, my bass at the time couldn't quite get that sound. The bass here is obviously a Stingray as I was able to achieve the exact same tone on my Sterling Ray34, even in the intro with very little effort in trying to get that sound. It sounded pretty good on a Jazz bass, dual humbucker Tune bass, surprisingly couldn't quite capture it on a G&L SB-2 and a MIM-P Bass - not that it sounded bad on either, just different. If there was a song to showcase the Stingray, this is definitely one of them. It's got that Stingray "sizzle" quality to it, in fact kind of relies on it. Is there any particular song that swayed or influenced you to buy a specific model bass that's difficult to duplicate with another make or model?
