Well, I had some extra money and bought myself a new natural colored, maple fingerboard stingray 4 today. It's an awesome bass and has all the growl and rock rarr I'll ever need. I'm running it through my sansamp rbi and the tone is PERFECT for me. I'll post a pic soon, I'm too busy playing it right now Btw, after checking out all the colors, the natural woodgrain/maple color combination is my favorite.. Anyone elses?
