    Small, trivial detail, but I took the plastic off the pick guard today, got the socket wrench and Allen wrench out so I can pull the little bits that always get stuck under the washers. Except, nothing was stuck. It just came off cleanly because they cut around the pots. Every manufacturer should do this.

    And it still sounds great.

    I love my SR5's but have yet to meet a Stingray from ANY era that needed "more output". If you are the recording engineer Stingrays can present a challenge once in a while.

    Hey, didn't George Blanda say that in 1989 about the new Precision Bass Plus in 1989?

    So I played both an H and an HH today. The H was really nice. The HH was amazing. Easily the best made instrument I have ever played in my life. No joke.

    I want aqua sparkle, but with the maple board. Wish they would offer FB or hardware color as an option, but I'm sure that won't happen. But still, these are really nice looking.

    They do offer it as an option - to Tim Commerford. So, all you have to do is....

    I would not argue against that statement. I feel these easily hang with $3-4K instruments.
