    Just got this beautiful bass a few days ago and I’m looking forward to some great times! I’ve changed the strings to DR Black Beauties. I’ve used it at church already and have been jamming at home, so far I love it! This is my first 5 string bass. If anyone has one please let me know what you think of it!! 7887ACC9-7C05-4C48-8D8B-730A771AFE61.jpeg 6185E97D-DB89-4E63-B940-892A2A019DE5.jpeg image.jpg image.jpg

    The sparkle finishes are so cool! I think the black strings look killer on it. Nice job!

    Sweeeeet!! I recently got a 5-string Special, also my first 5 string.

    On the wise advice of @lowdownthump it is wearing the Ernie Ball flats mentioned in post above.

    It has quickly become my favorite bass and feels like home.

    Your Blue sparkle SR 5HH is Mind blowing. If my shop would have had one of these, I might have gone for this one instead. Dont get me wrong, I am very happy. But I gigged last night and was missing some of the presence and depth I get from a bass with dual PU config. I might be on the lookout for your exact bass an alternate option to my incredible SR 5H Special.

    Thank you!
  13. Love that Charcoal Sparkle! Congratulations.

    Does anyone else feel the pickguards on Stingray 5s look cooler than their 4 string brothers? I used to think the symmetry of the 4 was the best but I've been leaning the other way recently.

    Beautiful! I recently purchased a SR5H special and I love it! I strung mine with DR High Beam Flats and it sounds great. I like Black Beauties and have my Fender Elite 5 Jazz strung with them...

    The DR Black Beauties have a remarkable tone. I recommend you try them out our the Fat Beams.
