I've been considering a 44-94, but I already have 2 MusicMan basses, a gorgeous will-never-sell Stingray 4 with heavenly biting modern growl and my old lover, the '79 Sabre for a more old school sound. But this 44-94 bekons me. My fear is that I would really be getting another Stingray tonally. Also considering a Lakland Decade ("and now for something completely different"). Oh, and the 44-94 is one of Lakland's early basses. Bass #150.
