    I have one of the Classics in 5 strings-- you'll love your new bass!
  3. Thanks guys!

    I've actually decided to go back to all 4 stringers by getting this. I'll be putting my Stingray 5 up in the classifieds soon; I just couldn't get with the tighter string spacing.

    So far I'm super impressed!
  4. That is very nice. The back of the neck is beautiful.

    Nice bass!

    I see you are in Dearborn Heights, I am in Allen Park. Mind if I ask where you picked it up? I was looking for one just like that two days ago, but I ended up going with a Stealth HH model.

  8. Hey thanks!

    Actually, I ordered it through basscentral.com

    Highly recommended!

    Don't see the natural finish enough these days--IMO one of the best if not the best choice for a ray. Looks awesome!

    I agree. Classis color (or non color) combination. Awesome bass indeed.

    I love the tolex G&G case. I didn't know they shipped with those now. I was just at bass central last week and tried out a classic Sabre. it had the normal ABS plastic case.

    duh. just read the case info. nevermind.
  13. Hey guys thanks for the kind words!

    Yea I just happened to check perfectbass.com at the same time I checked basscentral and saw those GG tolex cases for Musicman. I couldn't order one fast enough. I love these old school GG cases for some reason..

    Beautiful bass! The natural finish is one of my favorites I also love the Translucent White . I agree about the spacing if Sterling started offering a wider
    spacing option ,I would be all over a classic five.

    sexy basses. I used to own one. Perfect except for the fact that the tone was too mellow for my liking and it was kinda heavy

    Looks to me like you have a one piece body there, I was very close to making an excuse to buy one like this except with a rosewood board. It had a one piece body with an awesome grain. MM does a great job of matching the grain in their 2 or 3 pice bodies, it took me years to notice my first SR4 is a three piece body. I'm not saying a one piece is better for any real reason, just kinda cool....

    Beautiful bass! Just curious, do you have the original case AND the G&G you got from The Perfect Bass? When you bought it from Bass Central, it DID ship in a regular MM case, didn't it? So now you have two cases for it?

    EBMM Stingrays use to come with wood/tolex cases, but they switched to the cheap plastic cases sometime in the mid 90s -- just after they stopped putting a real finish on the necks. I am a little disappointed that they don't offer a nicer more period correct case for the classics -- they didn't get the bridge right on the new Sabre either. Such is life... Nice bass, btw :)
