    Hey, i was browsing through some japanese instrument sites. i was looking in the music man section first the usual made in u.s.a basses, but then stingray ex, and stingray ex-tb, made in japan looked (almost) identical to the american ones. i think this is quiet interesting and wanted to know if anyone has got some experience to share on these basses, like a comparsion to to the american ones.

    First Off-Welcome to TB.

    I think they've been discussed here a bit before. Might try doing a search. If i'm not mistaken [i could easily be] the EX and EX1t are made in Japan by EBs japanese distributor. I don't know if that's accurate or not, but i'm sure someone will chime in and explain it. That's all

  4. Not bad for the price. The feel a lot like the us made stingrays. Lack a bit of the tone though.
