    Whats with the natural one on the far right?

    *EDIT* Nevermind, I know its not a "Stingray" What make is it? Looks good though.

    I hate threads like these :) Gives me GAS for another MM. I have a Sterling now which I love, and I've always loved how Ray's look but I don't think I'd like the chunkier neck.

    That's my budget Ray... the clone in my sig!

    She's so sweet lookin' I couldn't stand to crop her from the pic. I know what ya mean about the necks. It took me a while to get used to them b/c all I played before were Ibanez Soundgears but they don't feel that "chunky" to me now.

    I do like to play my Roadstar every now and then just b/c it has the thinner neck like a Jazz bass, but you can't beat that Stingray tone!!!

    Don't look now Flywheel, but the blue one has a little man inside it and he's taking a picture of you.

    keep groooovin'
  16. When I did my work exp in a music store, I played just about every bass in there, and as far as im concerned, MM is for me.

    I played a bunch of P's and a few J's, but the only P-bass that was even a contender to the AMAZING MusicMan 3 band EQ w/ maple neck was a MIA '59 RI P-bass, but the neck just seemed too chunky.

    i reckon if i get some more fret on my grabber, i could get the MM sound, tho :D

    Here's my '99 EB MM SR5
  19. Some nice basses here! I love that Stingray shape, it's just so nice and balanced.

    My question is, how do people afford them? I'd love a Stingray but I think a lefty is about $3000-3500 (Australian dollars). Oh well, never too late to start saving :D
