    I figured I would start a thread for other owners of this incredible run of basses to show them off. It would also be nice to know what else is out there since EBMM does not disclose production numbers. I have heard that there weren't many ordered for this run, but have no idea what that number looks like.

    I've also started a survey to hopefully get a better idea of what is out there. Please don't post pics unless you are the owner!!

    I will start things off with my 4 String Stingray H SLO Special w/matching headstock. IMG_0370.JPG IMG_0374.JPG

    I just went with the actual models due to there being way too many options if I broke down pickup configurations, painted vs. non painted headstock and fretless. I can maybe try to get more specific if there is enough participation.

    Got mine a couple of weeks ago from N'stuff. Awesome awesome instrument:

    Stingray%205_zpsjfxhpqkw.

    stingray%20back_zpsaoo1bga3.
    They had two, this one and one with a matching headstock, which I would usually opt for, but the flame on the headstock was so insane, that I opted for the non matching.

    Is it OK if I refer to you all as the glitterbass gang? I feel like that's a win for everyone involved.

    Man these look great sitting next to a portaflex! A shot I took this morning, unfortunately I couldn't get it dark enough to show off the flame on the headstock:

    I love this thing, I use it for everything now.

    I have a Starry Night Cutlass.

    Of the skinny string variety.

    I'll do it up tomorrow, I wasn't feeling this guy until I managed to shoehorn in some steels with .95 E. Now it's solid. I won't say it is going to replace my Fender VI, but I think there is room in my life for two great loves. :)

    My silhouette replaced my schecter hellcat. But I can see how the silhouette and bass vi can complement and not replace one another. Pickups, bridge, neck width especially.
