So, my job had a luncheon today and down the road is a GC so I stopped in to buy some PA stuff. I decided to have a look see in the bass dept. Typical stuff but spotted one of the new Stingrays. A 5 string. I grabbed it off the wall. Holy Crap was it light! May have been 9lbs tops but I think lighter. A MM 5 string under 9lbs?!?! What?!?! I tried it out a little. String spacing was comfortable. Didn't seem tight at all. Maybe 18-18.5mm? Very nice. The weight had me gasping! Price put me off though. $2199!
