    Your answer is P-bass. Not that a 'Ray would be a bad thing, but to me a P would make your collection more well-rounded.

    As far as whether a 'Ray is worth it or not, of course its worth it. They are great basses that have been around for years and used for many recordings in all genres. The controls are vol/bass/mid/treble. Even if you get one of them new-fangled multi-p/u Stingrays, the knobs still do the same thing, just add a pickup selector to the mix.

    I still think your arsenal is always better off to have a P-bass in it, but a Musicman won't hurt either.

    P bass or Stingray.
    I would go with the Ray just because you already have the "fenderish" style covered.
