    Last week i was selling my Warwick Corvette FNA Jazzman on the sale forum, i ended up trading it for this beauty, the FedEX guy just put it on my hands, when i opened the box i fall in love!:D the bass is in mint condition and it sounds very funky (my search is over....for now) i want to thank my good friend Steve AKA jivetkr for this nice trade, he packed it so well, damn! i thought it was a water heater when i saw the box:D i've owned a few Rays in the past, but this is the best so far:bassist:

    Nice Ray5 is that cherry sunburst; it looks really similar to mine.

    ::snip::Nice bass, looks similar, i like the maple fretboard, but i'd keep the red toirtose pickguard ::end snip::

    I've been eyeing the replacement guards on wdmusicproducts.com for a bit but the black p/g looks great w/a tux or most of the uniform/outfits that i have to wear for school bands, and it was an extra $50 or so [i'm 16 $50 makes a difference w/the whole $5.50 an hour i get paid]. I do like the way your tort guard looks though; i'm wonderin how a mirrored or a smoked guard would look.
