    I just bought the olp Stingray 5 the other day it sounds great. It was the same sound as the musicman stingray 5. Just for a bargain. Even though i use the sterling basses, My guitar player in my band said i neded a five string the octave pedal just wasn't cutting it. So i favor the stingray 5 as being one of the best 5 strings made, So i was looking in musicians friend and saw the olp bass, When i saw the price of 250 bucks, i said "Man, that incredible" and i didn't wanna spend 5 gigs worth of money on the musicman. So i bought the olp, It sounded great, it gets great sound, I say its even better for slapping(better than the warwick thumb5 for sure). And if your that recording type person, they make a perfect match, olp all the way( i hope they make a sterling )

  11. Um, no offense, but I'm a little dubious about the credibility of a bassist who runs out and buys a new bass because his guitar player tells him to anyway.

    Welcome to Talkbass, SB.

    I am not even gonna comment on the OLP 5 vs. the 'Ray 5 comparison. I A/B'd them 2 weeks ago and GC, so I know what the differences are.

    I really don't see that this thread is going very far, though, and SB seems to have left. All I can see happening here is more flaming.

    Thread closed. Feel free to PM me if you disagree with me.
