New Bass Day Well I have wanted a stingray ever since I got rid of my last one due to its weight! Well I ordered this sight unseen and wasn't certain what I was going to get. I at first was a little disappointed because though it was the color I wanted, I didn't want the roasted maple neck because I wanted the white maple! Well after setting it up and playing it i can see why all the fuss over roasted necks! This thing plays like a dream!
