So I thought I was done GASsing for a while because my Stingray 5 has really satisfied my tone needs/wants, but I stopped into GC today just for fun (which usually has absolutely nothing) and played a used white/maple Darryl Jones 5 ($950). Oh man... I'm not big on jazz bass-type tone, it never cuts through quite the way I like, but the feel on this thing was amazing! It was like butter to play, I loved the string spacing and neck feel. In fact the overall feel and balance was superb! I am having serious thoughts about trading the 'Ray, as it's the only way I could afford it. Arghh!
