but i love the tone, it just rocks, cuts through the mix, great booming lows, it just has it for me.... but the neck. so, i'm thinking i'd like to find a different bass, something w/ a very similar sound, but with a much more user-friendly neck. something jazz-like, i have small hands. i love the three band eq, but i can always drop that in after. so, does anybody have any useful recommendations of basses to give a try? really love the stingray, i just develop some pains after playing for a few hours. thanks.
