Hi everybody, Allow me to briefly introduce myself, name is Xavi, from Barcelona, owner of a Tobias 5 Classic. End of introduction I am on the market for a Stingray and would greatly apreciate your comments regarding the differences in sound and playability between maple and rosewood fingerboard units. I have always played rosewood boards so I am comfortable with them, but the looks of maple kind of appeal to me (especially if figured). Second question: any time anybody puts a 20th or 30th anniversary for sale comments appear raving about the monster tone of these beasts. However afaik the differences are largely related to wood choices and aesthetics. Therefore I would think they must sound similar to the modern units (which tend to be considered less satisfying in terms of tone when compared to the 70s and 80s machines). Is there anything I am missing that sets the tone of these basses above the standard modern units? Thanks for reading this! Xavi.
