    For $999.00 this Sterling is gonna be hard to pass up. It's light, great fit & finish The fretwork is very good and it has low action without fret buzz. And the roasted neck and fretboard is absolutely beautiful and as good as both of my Specials. They're holding it for me for a few days.

    That is going to be tough! That’s a good price and I loved my Sterling. It’s literally the only bass I regret selling. That Bongo sounds nuts too though... BFRs are tough to score, or so I’ve heard.

    I know this thread is about our wonderful Stingray Specials and I'm sorry to side track so bad. This will be my last non Special post.
    I will not be purchasing the Daphne Blue Sterling in the above post. I'm going to concentrate all of my funds on the upcoming Bongo BFR.
    If anyone is looking for a great SR 5 Sterling with the most amazing very dark neck and fingerboard. It's light I'm guessing a little over 9Lbs, medium low action and no fret buzz it available and they will ship it to you.
    It's at Fret Mill Music Roanoke. Va.
    I don't have anything to gain other than pointing my EBMM friends to an amazing bass.

  6. New bass day! My very first Stingray just showed up, Special 5 HH in Frost Green Pearl. This thing is wicked, not nearly as heavy as I expected!

    I love this one. I think it's the matching headstock which puts it over the top.

    Did you just get that on Reverb? I was following that one, beautiful bass I would have jumped on if I didn't just buy a couple, lol.
  18. Yup. I've been looking at the new Specials for a while and then this popped up in my Reverb feed. Found the original listing for it from Willcutt Guitars, they had it listed at 8.0 lbs. That and the neck sealed the deal.

    I think it is a bit hotter than my older Stingray 4, but is also a little noisier. Kind of surprised by that. Anyone ever opened their Special up to look at the shielding? Is it pretty good? Just curious.

    Finally got myself a StingRay Special Aqua Sparkle!

    After three years without EB, I am finally back where I belong.
    It seems that all the problems that have existed so far have really been removed with a Special.

    May I have a Club number please?
