    Hey Dub56, I've trotted out my EBMMs so often that it's probably boring now, but that sure is a nice bass you have there.

    Not the best pic, but it's my only one of these. The club neck puts it low on my list of giggers.

    Ooh I like the red and white

    How does the fretless sound? I've never played a fretless MM

    Unfortunately I don't have any sound clips yet, but if you:

    - Favor the bridge pickup
    - Favor the piezo bridge
    - Make sure the neck is the straightest possible
    - Make sure that the action is as low as possible
    - Play over the end of the fingerboard...

    You get the sweetest mwah with no effort from this beauty. I don't play it as much as my fretted (I mean, not so many gigs), but I LOVE my fretless Bongo.

    Todd, nice display you've got there, even when the neck on the 5th bass from the left is not parallel to the others
    :bag:

    Does anyone have any more HH or HS Stingrays? I really love the tone of my HS, and if anyone has soundclips of a HH or even a Bongo I'd love to hear. I can post some clips of my HS to compare, It might be interesting.

    Here's my HH. I had it up for sale because I thought maybe I jumped into it too quickly. I was also considering a fretless at the time. But it really is one helluva bass. In fact, I'm going on a tryout today and that's the one I'm bringing with me.

    I still haven't nailed down the name of the color. (the GC salesman was an unbelievable dud.) It's awesome though. It's sort of a black (light)sparkle but when the light hits it, it looks dark blue.
    Can any MM experts help me out on the color?

    If it does indeed have a blueish hue, its carbon blue pearl. If it is just black, its graphite pearl. It looks like graphite pearl to me, because it doesnt look blue enough to be carbon blue. You may be seeing blue because the pickguard brings out those tones.
