So I went to Guitar center yesterday and tried a BUNCH of different basses. Out of all the basses I tried, I was most impressed with one: The MusicMan Stingray. OH MY GOD. The thing is absolutely orgasmic. It is totally uncomparable to any bass that I have found. The slap tone is absolute butter. I just had to tell someone who cared. Not that you guys didn't already know, but holy **** they are beautiful sounding pieces of equipment. Absolutely blown away. That growling low end slap tone is enough to make you melt.
