I went in to Guitar Center a week and a half ago or so and bought a SBMM Ray 34ca because I've sort of always wanted a music man bass and it was cheap and sounded good (and there were no actual music mans in stock). I liked the low end a lot but the G and D strings were getting lost in gig settings which I soon found was common with stingrays. I took the bass back and decided to order a step up and get an actual EBMM Stingray H 4. Love the low end on this one even more and the tone in general is great. The G still seems a little thin but manageable. Also got a new Micro Pog that it sounds sweet through!
