    Check these out! If the quality is there, these will be some great low budget alternatives. They are active with humbuckers and coil splitting like real SR5HHs.

    Hmm, looks like a pretty good alternative to a Stingray!

    These basses have a suggested retail of $650, I'm guessing the street price will be $455 since street is usually 30% off the suggested price.

    Damn you Cheese! I just bought a P bass how am I going to rationalize another Stingray copy?
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the equipment I have,
    the money to buy the equipment I need, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Do they come with maple fretboards?
     
  13. I've never found an OLP with a B string that was any good, but these I may have to check out!

    Are these already out or will they be released sometime later? I'm not seeing them on musiciansfriend.com or anywhere else like that.

    The B on my OLP Tony Levin is great. From what I've heard their quality control isn't the best so you may have to pick through the stock if you can. I got lucky the first time.
     
  15. I'll just have to go out and get my hands on a few more then. I've probably played about 5 at different stores, and all have had pretty bad B strings. It could've been that the strings themselves sucked, but I'm not sure.

    All I know is I've got GAS for an MM style bass... This bass would solve that problem pretty quickly.

    I'd want one of those in the tony Levin Peach color. That would look sick.
     
  17. I may have to get one of these.

    Why? Dont ask!

    What does every one think of the OLP's in general?
     
  19. The only ones ive played have the action set MAJORLY high, in music shops of course. Other than the string height being so high I like the overall tone and the B string on the TL sig is great, not floppy at all.

    Ive known about these for a few months now, I want an M22 whenever they come out.
