I have long been an admirer of the Stringray 5. I think it is one of the best (maybe the best) values in 5 string basses. One of the reasons I don't currently own one is the weight of the instrument - most are over 10 lbs. I was just wondering what the experiencs of Ray 5 owners is out there? Does the weight bother you or have you found solutions through good straps or anything? I've got a 70's P bass I don't play because it is too heavy for me (for sale if anyone is interested). W.
