I know somoene selling their Stingray, no issues, for CAD800. Is that a fair price? This will actually be my first real bass since starting to learn last month! It may be a big jump for a first bass, but I want something that feels & sounds good without having to upgrade soon after getting a cheap one. I've played a Sterling and it felt good but was CAD1300. I've also played a Squier '51 reissue P-bass and it felt like plastic! Would like something a little in between. How would you characterize Stingrays vs. Fender P-basses or Sterlings? All I've read so far is that Stingrays are 'bolder' than Sterlings.
