Re: a past thread. Why would a Stingray 5 be viewed as a "one trick pony." I could see this if it had only one pickup setting. I am seriously considering switching over from a Warwick Corvette Standard, which I believe is closer to that description. Before I do, I want to get this resolved first. One other thing. Who has the best selection and prices on Musicman basses. The one I am looking at Sam Ash is $1,400.
