    Just got back from the music store, with a MusicMan Sub under my arm. Huzzah!<p>

    Alright, JT and friends, I know it's only got 4 strings, I know it wasn't hand-built, I know it hasn't got a burled, knurled, birdseye, buckeye, walnut, whatever top :rolleyes:, but it suits me just fine :D<p>
    I guess I'd better get down to business :bassist:
     
  2. Very cool! Is that a graphite neck? If so, it's probably a killer slappin' machine!
     
  3. is that ur ray in the back ground, from comparing all the rays and subs that i have played i think there bassically the same bass.they feel the same playing and all most sound the same but they have a diffent preamp and cheaper finshes, do u agree.
     
  4. SUB isnt my "type" but,I really dig the color scheme you got....white w/ rosewood:)

    I'd take off the pickguard though....looks tacky,IMO

    Have fun:)


    what kind of neck is that?

    The pickguard doesn't look any less tacky when you learn it's not even real steel - it's just foiled plastic :meh: <p>
    No, it's not my ray. Took these picks at a friends house cause I don't have digital camera of my own. I've played both, and if I had my eyes closed I'd have hard time telling the difference (although the Ray is marginally nicer). Take into account that the Sub is about half the price, and it's definitely a good buy.<p>
    About the pickguard - I'm looking on the website and they don't seem to sell them. Should I just look around for a second-hand one, or is there some place that'll sell just a pickguard?
     
  8. Looks cool dude :D That pickgaurd looks so good against the white.

    I kinda like the color of thepickguard on that.... but then again it IS quite tacky. I think a black pearloid would look great on it.
