    thanks guys... I like the Black pearloid pickguard.. I like it better than the white pearl one.... But who knows, maybe one day i'll feel saucy and change them up a bit.. but I love the black perloid.... and the price.. i paid $1401 with case and strap.. thats tax included.... Yeah the matching headstock makes it so beautiful

    Those are all sweet! I can't decide if I like the matching headstock, or the natural.... but I really dig all the maple necks!

    hey idiezman, did u order yours from the factory or buy it preordered at a store? I'm wondering becuase i wanted to know how long it took if u ordered it from the factory. I ordered one a few monthes ago and i patiently waiting here for it, but i'm hoping it will be here in the next couple weeks. Well if you could answer my question that'd be great.

    nice bass, but personally I would have gotten it without the matching headstock + with a regular black pickguard. It costs less, and IMO, looks better. Like deese one!

    thats just IMHO...

    I got mine from the store... I actually saw a stingray 4 string on ebay one time. it too was pearl blue with the black perloid pickguard and matching headstock.. I told myself if I ever found that bass in a 5 string model I would sell my soul to get it.. I walked into a store about 3 months ago and there it was... it was listed at 1700 somethin... but they were selling for like $1565.. the same price as the stingray five they had beside with a regular white pickguard and non-painted headstock... So i didn't pay anything more for mine.... and since I paid cash... they knocked off some more moolah....
