    Well, I wasn't planning on selling her, this was just decided within the last week.....after I got my 535, and fell in love with it.....it covers all my needs, and then some.

    I hate to see the ray go, but I am building a kickass lightshow for my band, and need to free up some funds to do so.

    Sorry bud.

    By the way, how did the Stingturdser deal turn out for you?

    I made Bass Palace refund the full amt. of the sale plus extra to ship it back to them. He's now got the bass advertised with a correct description at $650 instead of the original $789 he was asking. I still think his price is too steep and I'll never do business with Bass Palace again.

    I did score a gem off Ebay the other day (my new '98 Ray). I still wish I could have yours too though! Good luck selling her.

    BTW...what's a 535, is that a Lakland?

    Thanks...I don't know much about MTD. I've seen several pics of them and they are usually nice on the eyes, but I couldn't play a bass with that body style.

    oh yeah... Sterlings are awesome. Even they are a bit small for me though. Ever seen a big guy playing a Sterling? They look really small...like the pic of Anthony Valenti (Nino Brown) on his site; the bass looks like a toy on him.

    I think a Sterling would look about the same on me.

    I'm 6', and 250# and it felt great......don't really care what the others though :)

    Looks no more like a toy than a g**tar does :D

    I don't mean to suggest that you should care about what others think. I was just trying to say that it looks small on a big guy like Nino and I'm sure it would feel like a toy in my hands. You know what I mean? Everybody's different though...I play with the bass strapped low, Anthony seems to set his basses up higher, you might do the same.
