My GAS is at an all time high right now for an HH Stingray, so show me some pics baby!
All I have to say is, don't try one, they are AMAZING. I never really loved the stingray sound that much but I tried one of these things once and I kept coming back to the store just to play it. The tone, the feel, just awesome, the downside is the price which is out of my range a bit. The sound is quite versatile and I love that the neck pickup adds more warmth and a sort of pbass'iness to it, and the controls are very well designed.
Alas, no pics
I already did try one.
These are the coolest sounding basses i've ever heard! Position 3 is the ultimate slap tone, while postion 4 is the ultimate fingerstyle tone.
I never thought I would own a MM Stingray as I've always been a two-pickup bass guy and I felt the SR single-pickup config just wasn't the sound for me. However, with the HH configuration, I really found a sound I love and still get the benefit of the SR sound.
Plus, Guitar Center went nuts one Saturday and marked a brand-new SR4 HH Black Onyx/Moonstone pickguard down to $900 and I just had to take it home.
Great bass, great quality, great deal.
Someone tell me how to attach/upload pics and I will provide one.
Go on ImageShack.us and upload the pictures, then pase the tags here.
I just shed a tear.
This bass is so great.
Let me ask... and I am almost afraid to... but if you had to choose between the HH or the HS, what would you choose?
I have an HS - and I love it... but I have been contemplating upgrading - would you consider this an upgrade or a lateral-grade?
I have both configurations (on Bongos) and wouldn't consider it an upgrade...just another fun thing to play with.
Thanks, Jack. That helps!
I have not played an HS, and while I'd like to, I do really like the sound of the neck humbucker by itself for country and raggae tones. I suspect that the HS gets a better "j bass" imitation tone, though. So its probably a toss up.
The most important sound on any of these basses is the classic Ray tone, bridge pickup in paralell!
