    Personal toy, or did you get that for military purposes? Seriously, like army band or something...

    nice bass! it looks great. If the Army is starting to pay for basses, then sign me up! hehehe
     
  4. Sweet looking Sterling Army. I've got GAS for a Stingray or Sterling. Very nice basses!
     
  5. The classic Leo-isms like the elephant-ear tuners; the timeless body shape; the fast neck; the P-like thunder: the J(aco)esque burp; it's all inside...but this ain't JC Penny! Nice axe. The piezo bridge option is nice on this axe too. I like my single pickup a bit more towards the neck though. My Warwick sports the Basslines 3-band MM system, including a pull-slap-contour volume pot. :cool:
    Congrats. You have my envy.

    Thanks guys....that is my personal axe and I do use it and my other MM's for the Army Gig....but the Army has provided me with quite a few NICE Basses that I get to use as well. I have had them purchase a Modulus Q5, Q6, Yamaha TRB6P, Afew Fender Jazzes, and a Very, Very NICE Azola Acoustic Baby Bass!


    I make sure that your tax dollars are well spent in the bass department. Hoping to replace a very old Tobias with an SR5 next fall.
     
  7. Hi armybass.

    The 5 is the green one with black pickguard?
    If so good choice.
    Enjoy them!

    I dont feel safe anymore....

    I mean common if you cant get the Sterling with the Piezo, how can I expect you to defend our country!?!?!?

    J/K

    I know we're in good hands, but I still wouldve gotten the Sterling with Piezo's, actually add fretless to the list of features.

    I wish I could join the armed forces, but as a Diabetic, I have heard they will not take me. Do you know if thats true?

    I still have a year left of high school, so I still have time to think of other options.

    I really admire that youve dedicated yourself to serving our country.

    Peace
    Nick
