    Do a search about OLP and you 'll find several post about ...

    They are good looking cheap basses that sound very good for their price ...

    4 strings are nice but 5 are less .... "nice" ..

    Have your OLP a matching headstock and a maple fretboard ?

    I played one at GC when I was looking for a decent knockoff. I liked it. I did an A-B comparison with a real MMan and it was very close. I ended up with the Essex J bass. I would definitely get an OLP. Maybe for my next bass purchase.

    Glad you like yours.:D

  6. Officially licensed, yes. Made by Musicman, no. Warrantied by MM, no. Decent Stingray for the money, yes.
     
  7. Yes the body and headstock match and the fingerboard is maple all right! why do they do that anyways?? its a 4 string too, what type of amp should i get for it, I buy a new amo for every bass i get too.

    OLP Stingray's are close to the real thing but a little ways off. At the warped tour I had a chance to play both side by side as Ernieball had a little display setup with the basses running through those little KORG headphone amps. The weird thing is they had an OLP that was a green-blue type color. You can't order them anywhere... I really like the color. Anyways, they are really nice IMO. As for an amp it depends on what you want. Practice amp, Head and cab setup, etc. Ask for suggestions at the amps forum.
