    I have a Stingray(4) and I was wondering what neck specs it has. It seems to be the most comfortable neck Ive had on a bass that Ive owned. Im guessing its similiar to a P bass neck?? Just wondering if Im playing a baseball (bassball ;) ) bat, or a noodle.

    I know dumb question.

    Closer to a classic P bass than anything else, although the profile isn't quite as thick.

    I have a Stingray 5, which I own mostly because every bass player should have one, and I've described the neck as "club-like." Baseball bat, compared to Lakland or Pedulla. This is not necessarily bad, though.

    Musicman is close.. to Musicman! Agreeing to David-Adler on this one. Musicman has their own tone, which other basses do not have. Especially their slap tone. I Tried some Stingrays and Sterlings. I favor the sterlings over Stingray. but thats just me. Everyone has their own opinion. I don't mind the small body, and I like the pickup switch(Stingray 5 has those though).
