Finally bought a EB Music Man Stingray!! I am flat out amazed, love it in every way. 'cept for the strings that were on there... Any recomendations?? I like slap but play mostly fingerstyle for my band, and I also need to detune to drop d sometimes I was thinking that I need a set with light A,D and G-strings... , but with a slightly heavier E. Would a simple medium gauge set do the trick? Glad I didnt get any other bass. Got it used from GC for 700! (listed at 900) blue pearl with white pearloid pg and maple neck, its a beauty. BTW, where do I go to to find out when it was made? I have the serial # please dont harass me for my noobishness on the intranet.
