The more I think about it, the worse I get. I have been thinking of getting a Music Man Stingray, but haven't been able to find one in a good color online, the local store has one (ugly one). Also haven't found any w/ piezo. ORRRR Get a Warwick thumb neck-through. Which I haven't found anywhere. Will probably have to sell blood for extra money. My only concerns are: MM- Pickup seams a little far down to use as thumb rest for finger pick/strum. WW- Is it very neck heavy? Does that wood require a LOT of extra care? As far as a new amp/cabinet. I am completely lost as where to go, I am stepping up from a IMO crappy Crate BX-100.
