    I hope they have one at NAAM and someone post a video.

  2. Does not make me regret my JMJ Mustang purchase. I already have one Stingray, and one is almost too much IMO.

    Is it just me? The headstock is hideous.

    I have a ticket to NAMM this year but darn it not sure if I’ll have time to go. Hoping someone can post whether this is on site.

  9. What in the world, surprising! I'm going to wait to play one but if they got it right I'm in. This is something I would have never even thought about existing

    I'd love to see a 32 incher with the 2 band Stingray electronics

    I bet they were inspired by the success of the mustang p/j, but I would say that was due to the reasonable cost as much as the quality of the mustang. So if they could hit the 6-700 range I think it would be super successful, but 1700, not so much. Of course, success for MM may look different than success for fender.

    Does "passive bass boost" actually mean "passive bass cut, but we turn the switch on at the factory"?

  14. I guess that's possible, kind of like a hofner. Might also be a treble cut I guess.
     
  15. This makes me laugh, as I swear there was a member that started a thread within the last year wishing EBMM would release short scale basses. I believe he got a lot of crap and hardcore answers like "No" and "Yuck", as well as some stern explanations one why "EBMM don't need to do that as there is no demand for SS models". ;)

    I personally think it's great. In fact they should release active versions also! Oh and medium scales too! Yup I know, I'm the one wishfully thinking now.. :laugh:

    Booth pic borrowed from Sweetwater. I suppose the blue is the other finish, along with he burgundy.
    But note the maple FB option as well.

    EBMM short scale.

    Very cool, I always thought The stingray would be a good platform for a short scale.
