    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.

    Grats! I used Rotosound nickle strings on my Sabre and they sounded great

    Head on over to the EBMM forums, there is a stickied post where you post your serial number and they tell you the exact date of when it was made. I think mine was February 7th 2007!

    Nice! I love my Stringray too. Great basses. For strings I use Slinkies. Once they mellow they have a great fingerstyle tone.
