    Love the new colors. Wish I didn't have to sell my car to be able to afford one...

    Ghostwood sorta looks like some folks' take on Shoreline Gold.

    Love that MM is using Firemist Silver... always dug that color.

    No love for the EBMM Sterling? Disappointing...

    EBMM is making some of the best looking stuff out there at the moment. I haven't played one of the new Sting Rays but I imagine they're pretty sweet.

    But where is the St Vincent bass that has been discussed previously????

    I know, I'm hoping they aren't going to fade off this model. Last year only had a limit of two colors only (
  7. The new colors are nice; the couple of times I stopped at a GC they didn't have any 5 string specials; I am good with my 1990 SR5, but I am keeping an eye on those specials.

    Tell me more about the St Vincent bass! But first I need to get my hand one of the Sunburst SS Stingrays :drool:

    Cool colors. But that toilet seat shaped pickguard never did much for me.

    So far it looks like for the StingRay Special Five-String version, these are the known fingerboard/body color combos:

    Ghost Pepper?yes
    Tectonic Blue Sparkle?yes
    Maroon Mist?yes
    Firemist Silver??
    Burnt Amber??
    I personally hope that Burnt Amber is offered with a maple fingerboard.

    I thought I read somewhere here that the St. Vincent bass was cancelled, but I'm holding out hope that the Vault may have some of prototypes for sale.

    Me too...1994 and 2nd one in 1995.
    Now I don’t have either (traded one plus $ for the L2500 I still do have).

    Ah, yes. It was hard to tell just what color it was by the chart. The sample was the size of a pea.
