    Im doubting it was. He probably selected the wood himself and had it made into a body./

    Yeah, the look is gonna be all natural. The back is mohagany, the top is rainforest wood. Forgot the names.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Picked this one up a few weeks ago on ebay for $170.00 and it is the best Stingray copy I've ever played or heard. It came with an active preamp and I replaced the pickup with a Basslines - it plays and sounds great! It has a matched maple tiger stripe top (not photo finish), and the construction is surprisingly good.

    I sanded the "RJP Technologies" logo off of the headstock, refinished the headstock and left it blank. It even has a battery cover on the back that is reminiscient of the pre-EB models. The headstock is an exact dimensional/shape copy of the Stingray's as well. I would be shocked if these guys did not get sued for it.

    I can't think I've seen a finish that nice on any real EB.
    Thats a great find.

    Thanks man! It is more versatile, tonally, than my Stingray, too. You can dial in a sweet Stingray tone, but with a little more growl, believe it or not. I actually REALLY like the tone of it and I almost opted to gig with it instead of my Stingray the other night!

    I have a Stagg SR4 copy, all black, that I paid £150 for last year (compared to £1100 for the real thing). Sorry, no pic, but I'm sure you can imagine what it looks like... pretty much like a black SR4! The only way it's less than authentic as a copy is it has a 4-a-side headstock instead of the famous 3+1.

    It's actually a really nice bass and holds up fairly well when compared to my other basses - definitely the best value for money! I usually say it's like 80% of the quality for 10% of the price. It's got great bottom end thump, and I do use it a fair amount. I tend to take it out when I need to leave a bass locked in the car all day whilst at work before going to a gig or rehearsal.
