    You buy an EB Stingray and even if you do a slightly aggressive hammer on, the g string comes off the neck. So much for quality made instruments. EB are just like many other manufacturers they claim perfection for their extortionately priced instruments when the fact of the matter is that they have flaws.

    Ok, but I'm not sure how I misrepresented your original post... You compared MIM Fenders to 2k plus Musicmans to justify the price of the Musicman. Do you think you are the only one who thinks that a $600 MIM Fender is not as well built as a 2k plus Musicman? Does that help the op understand why the new Stingrays cost more than the older ones? Why not just tell the op how/why the new Stingray is better than the older, less expensive model? Would that be more helpful?

    Peeps complain about pricing. I was just pointing out that of one wants StingRay quality one shouldn’t reasonably expect to get it at a modest price. If one wants a modest price point, one should look to a modest bass. I was not comparing EBMM and MIM Fender quality. I was using MIM Fender as an example or what one gets at a modest price. And no disrespect to MIM Fenders — everyone knows they’re better than MIA Fenders (that was a joke). I was just raking ya ‘cause you turned around what I said. Peace, my friend.
