    While I have been going mostly old school for the past few years I must say the "new" neck through Stingrays are the most radical and pleasing reinterpretation of a classic that I can recall. Lots of "redesigns" are gimmicky in my opinion and rarely improve upon the classic design... Not so here. I picked up a lovely neck through not expecting to be blown away by the tonal experience I have had. I mean it is totally a Stingray through and through but there is a sustain and clarity that is so rich. I am doing some recording in the next few months and can not wait to hear how this bass translates to the finished product.

    I would love to hear others experiences with strings, amps ect regarding the NT Rays.

    It truly is. Just weird that there seems to be little talk on the interwebs about them.

    The neck finish on my bolt on stingray is the best I've ever played, I wouldn't swap it for a painted neck and increased sustain.
