Does anybody know the real difference between a SUB and a Stingray? I've been gunning for a Stringray for the past few months but after looking at the literature they seem to be the exact same hardware and the exact same electronics. In fact, the guy at the store told me (not sure how accurate this is) that the wood is actually from the same stock that is used for the transparent stingrays...just the sections with ugly blemishes or other cosmetic defects that wouldn't look good transparent. Maybe this is a reason the SUBs have that thick matte finish? Anyway, I've played a few and really can't tell too much of a difference...there seem to be some tonal characteristics but not really consistent between the lines..just from guitar to guitar. Does anyone know what the difference is between these two basses? Why in the hell is this bass so cheap? Also, has anybody out there played a Bongo? As far as I can tell no one in the Pittsburgh area seems to stock them. thanks!
