All right all you Ballers. (ernie...ballers). I'm still tinkering with my humble MIM Jazz but it is time now, indeed, for 5 strings. I'm familiar with the vast amount of 5 stringers out there and the various options. It's quite mind-boggling. The other day I was sittin' around watchin' the tele and somehow the Under the Bridge video came on. In that wacky Flea's hands was, lo and behold, a stingray5. I LOVE the tone of his bass on that song. Which brings me to my point, I hear Stingray5's are 'one trick ponies.' But I have yet to clearly hear satisfying clips of their 'one trick.' Is the sound of Flea's bass on "under the bridge" the trick, or does anyone have solo clips of the stingray5 in action? fingerstyle, slap, tap, anything? Thanks for anyone who can post up some solid sr5 clips. Also I know weight and sheer size of the instrument is pretty daunting, but that can be compromised if the sound is just too good to pass up. Also, how do the Lakland 55's stack up? I hear they're pretty smooth as well.
