    Do a search on it, and LO! There is much good talked about this bass, and much smack about others.

    Seriously, this thing kicks serious butt for less than $500, and can be a monster for about 650, if you upgraded the preamp. As is, about $475, it can handle anything you throw at it. It's that good. It's B string is bar none, even some of the higher $2000 can't beat the B on this thing.

    You could use the other $500 on something else...like a fretless version of one (calling fhodshon?)

    If you want that stingray sound, but not the price, i say go with OLP, for 250, you can get a 5er. OLP is a branch of Ernie Ball MusicMan. Im buyin one.

    Lakland 55-01. Best bass I've played for under $1000.

    you can get a used stingray 5 for that much... or 2 kingstons... but you can only play 1 bass at a time, so it might as well be a good one.
