    I saw them too, but didn't want to ask about 'em, because I can't stand the "what do you think of this bass" threads.

    So, what does everyone think of this bass?

    For that price, you can get a REAL stingray used in excellent condition on Ebay . . . and have a superior instrument with better resale value.

    Speaking of which, I saw a nice Red SR5 @ 5th Ave Fret shop last week... My 1st visit there, neat store.

    I cannot stand the huge body of a SR5, I would be inclined to buy the SUB 5 as the SUB 4 sounds like a Ray to me...and I have owned 3 real ones...

    Yeah, if you don't end up with someone else's junk instead.

    I'm still not 100% sold on buying instruments sight unseen. Sorry.

    Very interesting, can somebody detail the differences in the more expensive stingrays and the SUB's? I see they are still american made, but did they just eliminate the option list and that brought down the cost?
    By the way, I like the pickguard design on the SUB better than the SR5. Not the material, but the shape.

    I agree. The two things that I don't like about the 'Ray 5 are the string spacing, and that huge piece of plastic covering almost the whole front of the bass.
