  1. Here's the deal: I need to know (tonewise): what guitar would compliment a Fender P AND a Stingray?

    Strats, most probably.

    I can't think of a guitar that would totally sound like crap next to either of these basses, though.

    I have a Strat style(read clone) guitar made bySchecter in the 80's and it has EMG active single coil PU's,which have a wider frequency response than passive Strat PU's.I don't have a Sting Ray but I would think that this guitar would compliment the sound of one nicely.
  5. well, i forgot to include this, but my g##t#r#st has had problems w/strats, so he's not too into them...
  6. My previous guitarists played PRS's(The McCarty Model) and Les Pauls.Of course one guy played through a Triple Rectifier and the other had a Fender/Sunn half stack.

    I think that these two styles of bass have been played probably more or less successfully with every kind of guitar.

    Exactly, Robert. I've heard Teisco Del Rays sound great. It's really, really, not the guitar...

    Les Paul. But then again, I just love Les Pauls so I'm quite biased.

    that's a wonderful picture! I looooove pictures with a shallow depth of focus like that.

    But yeah, I kinda think those basses are really versatile; I've seen 'em both in almost every genre/situation. So I'm sure any guitar would sound good with 'em.

    Gibson stuff would compliment either bass nicely (+1 on the Les Paul!).

    Of course, the type of amp being used is a factor as well...
