MM Classic Ray, Elrick, Roscoe test drives!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by ProgRapture, Apr 24, 2010.


  1. My friend and I happened to swing by the Farmer's Branch Guitar Center in Dallas, due to their above average bass selection, and lo and behold: some basses I have been dying to try out!

    The Ray was my favorite, but it had an unfair advantage of being 4 strings and shell pink. If you've ever played a Ray, you know how it sounds, blah blah. What made it stick out was the glossy neck (I liked it more than I thought), the slab body, and awesome finishes.

    The Elrick was their Gold Series 6 string (Alder, flame maple top, maple neck, rwood fretboard). This was my second favorite, surprisingly, due to the fact that I don't like 6 strings, and I don't like wide spacing, but the feel and sound made up for it by far.

    The Roscoe was a 5 string, bolt on with a orange/red burst. I wasn't a big fan of the thicker neck, but it was surprisingly light and it had a great sound.

    Is that the GC off the interstate heading to the North (rich) side of town? I went to it last year when the family was on vacation, and I was totally blown away! It was the coolest GC, by far, I have ever visited.:)
     
  3. I'm pretty sure. They also had a huge PRS and Musicman guitar section too. I got to jam on a couple of new Albert Lee sigs and some Ball Family Reserve guitars. I can't stand the stereotypical GC environment, but this one has a pretty posh but friendly atmosphere.

    Nashville GC is the cooliest, but this one sounds sweet!

    Last week I received a shell pink StingRay from that same Dallas GC. He was the only one who had them because of the show, so I was able to snag one before the guitar show.
