Way back in 1987 I bought a Musicman Stringray; it was my go-to bass when I was putting myself through college playing country and small group jazz. As time passed, its bright tone lost favor with me, and its been nearly 10 years since I've gigged with it. I did try different strings (flats, ground-rounds, half-wounds) but to my ears, its not the same bass without round-wounds. Fast-forward to Black Friday and I play an Old Smoothie at a well-known shop that is closing its doors. The bass is everything many of the reviewers on this page and Bass Player magazine says it is. The main attraction is its significantly mellower tone, but still with Stringray characteristics. I don't want two Stringrays. Should I buy the Old Smoothie and sell the '87 Stringray, or pass and keep a 30-year-old bass that's a fantastic instrument albeit one I don't play? Opinions Please!
