    My new *used* Stingray arrived today! I love this bass, it's punchy, growly, tight and is really fun to slap!

    Here's some eye-candy:

    Nice, simplistic, understated. Probably sounds great. Good score.

    You're very welcome. That was the best 4 string I've ever owned. You'll like it more with some DR's. Ernie Ball sent me some of the slinky's in the black pack for registering it online, and that's what is on there now. I didn't like them, but I wanted to send it out with some fresh strings.

    I had that same layout on a lefty Stingray. Bought it for $650 used. It was a bit beat but wow, what a great sound. I sold it. I'm an idiot.

    Enjoy that bass. It looks fantastic !!!!!!! Wish I had mine back :meh:
  9. That's like, the greatest thing ever. Enjoy it.
  10. Swap the maple board for a rosewood, and that's my bass. :bassist:

    You own a black Stingray. :cool:
    You can marry one of my nieces! :D

    Congrats on the 'Ray, Karrot-X.

    ^Haha, I don't want to get married yet :). I thought DR high beams were on here, they look and feel like my old high beams. Practice is going to be awesome tomorrow :0.

    Nope. Those are Slinky's. I didn't care for them too much. I didn't like the feel of that type. I like the Slinky's in the pink pack. 100-45's. Those are 105-45's on there now. Hope you enjoy it. Was it MINT or what?

    I bought it from Ebay, but it turns out that the bass is from a tb'er here that did post it in the Gear for Sale forum :).

    One of the most perfect basses made. It can do almost anything and it feels sweeter than buttah. Enjoy it.

    I owned that exact bass. I didn't appreciate it when I had it (kept reaching for the precision with flats), and miss it now.

    Congrats. It looks great.
