Well, about 6 months back I bought a new Stingray. It is my first good bass, and I love it to death. I didn't have any opportunities to take any good pics back then, but I've borrowed a mates camera and taken some. Here they are. The finish is dark cherry burst. As you can tell, different lighting conditions make the finish look different. Sometimes it's really dark and mysterious, other times the red is really bright. I like that Anyway, I love the bass, it plays amazingly and sounds great... on to the pics!
