    a friend of mine wants to buy a music man stingray... I told him to buy a rickenbacker... don't know which model I think it's called 4003... I like the shape of that bass but I don't know about its sound... what should my friend buy in your opinion? we all know stingrays sound great, what about rics?
  2. Steps for buying :

    -Find one of each
    -Play them bot
    -Thank me

    But if he slaps then get the Stingray; Rics arent very good for that.
  4. Go fore the stingray, it’s an all-round bass and its really sounding great, in all styles of music:oops:
