    This young woman is definitely getting a more Fender like sound out of her 30th Anniversary Stingray V. Sterling Ball said the preamp was designed to be less extreme than earlier versions. That said, I showed it can still get that Stingray thing going if that is what you want to hear:

    That explains it. I used to annoy the hell out of my brother, when he'd tried being serious on video...made him MAD, but had me dying laughing.

    Mine are 6 and 9. Please tell me it took 45 years for yours to get tall and pretty. If it flew by, lie to me. :crying:

    Oh yeah. Nice bass. Cool videos.

    I had this bass for a day and returned it. Sounded great but unfortunately had QC issues. Still beautiful to look at.

    I've never even had kids, but have a number of little cousins. Well, at least they were little...most of them were toddlers, and now are almost all ready for college. WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT....

    QC issues? Wow, I remember reading somewhere that they inspected every 'Ray before it shipped out.
    I may have misread but there's always one that gets through.

    Even boutique makers get dumped on for human error.

    The action was fine. In that GC, the pricy basses are way too high for a million teenagers to beat them to death.:D

    Yeah definitely uncharacteristic for EBMM but they're still mass production instruments, sadly mine was one of the few that fell through the cracks.

    Doc is like the conscience of TB. Honest Abe. :smug:

    Anyways great demo, but that lady in the first video has a magnificent voice. And now I just want to hear Doc play and sing like that in one of his videos!

    I can actually sing. If I can work out a bass/vocal arrangement, I will.
