Well, to put it short... I was GASing hard for a ray classic and thought it would be the bass to own all the other basses, but turns it out it was not the case. I have only, heard people give them positive reviews over here. Why not share what you not like about them? I mainly got rid of it due to it being sounding too mellow. It sounds too mid scooped compared to a regular ray. I have not played a real pre-EB so I cant compare them to that. I can imagine it sounding fine in a pop cover band or whatnot, but it doesnt cut through with distortion guitars like I hoped it would... it doesnt help that its also one of the heaviest basses Ive played Other than that, it looks gorgeous and really does play like butter.
