Well, I was thinking about a stingray yesterday but then I saw this.
SE Kingfisher - 2021
Most of the sound samples in the video didn’t sound very Stingray-like. While the top end sounded like a Stingray when set to be clear and bright, a Ray usually still has a grinding deep low end that this didn’t seem to maintain. It’s passive and neck through so it’s built quite differently as well.
It shore is purdy. (I suppose if you wanted a Ray-like tone out of it, you could see about getting it retrofitted for a Ray-like preamp.)
Resale value won't be as good as for a Stingray, will it?
I’ve never been fully satisfied with the stingray so the fact that it sounds different is probably a good thing and I prefer passive basses.
I have an AM Pro Jazz that I am thinking of getting rid of which is the only reason I am considering a new bass.
And since I don’t sell basses (only trade at the store) I am not too concerned about resale value.
I absolutely love this color!
I already have a Kingfisher, and aside from the anemic sounding electronics I LOVE that bass (I have since upgraded the electronics though).
If this new one has the same electronics, I'd probably switch them out too...but the tone in the video does sound more "full" than what mine was stock, so maybe PRS addressed that? Would love to check one of these out.
Love the looks and sounds. 10" radius neck sounds good to me also. This bass hits it out of the park. Simple, elegant, sounds both smooth and/or punchy.
This one is passive, which I prefer. Pickups are pretty hot when wide open.
I much prefer this over a Stingray because of the additional neck pickup.
