I'm makin a big trip out to guitar center tonite -- i'm super excited cous i'm getting hooked up w/ the bass of my choice for a late birthday present!! (Shhhwiiiinnngg!! ) I guess that means the possibilties are endless , but, yeah right... (BTW this is technically going to be my first bass) I decided i really want a musicman stingray, 3 eq -- with a woodsy sort of color to it, perhaps sunburst.. But, when i called gc yesterday, they said they only had two 4 string stingrays: Black, or gold... I wasn't thinking about black... definitly not gold either.. Is there a way to, i guess, order basses when your there?? y'know, like, tell 'em what u want and they'll get it for you in like a couple weeks or something? if so, would it be more costly/ a bigger bitch than what its worth? should i just keep looking?? so confuused, and still learning I'd appreciate any help!
