    It looks like it's going to be a Stingray.

    looks like a (EB or PRE-EB)musicman/olp stingray...

    Musicman being an awesome bass

    and the OLP.. well..

    What are the clues that give it away as an OLP? You may be right, but my eye isn't that good.
     
  6. It's a StingRay, whether it's a Musicman or an OLP I can't tell.

    I wouldn't say OLP is bad, but it doesn't compare to the MM. Nor should it, being $800 cheaper.
     
  7. K, i saw one just like it on e-bay as a music man, but it was a '79. I sware to god, today, a pic of it was posted earlyer today of it...

    I doubt it's an OLP. That one looks like it has a transparent finish. Never seen an OLP like that.

    Agreed...Its not an OLP judging from the finish.

    I think its an OLP MM4 because I was just looking through one of my musicians friend magazines, and spotted an OLP that looked Identical to the one in the pics.
     
  11. check that thumb! Killer technique! :D

    yeah, like I've got room to talk! :rolleyes: ;)
     
  12. You mean you're not supposed to fret the D string with your thumb?!?!

    Crap.:(
     
  13. thats a 4 string and the olp mm4 comes in black and blue. the olp mm5 comes in natural. so, its a music man

    I do believe its a Stingray.. I could be wrong.. but thats a darn good natural finish for an OLP. Never seen an OlP with that finish..
