So which one is it?
Which ever one you like the most.
What Estring said. They're all decent basses, only *you* can decide which is best for you.
P.S. 300 Percent Density is one of my favorite albums lately.
MM Stingray has by far the best resale value (at least in Germany), something to consider perhaps...
Seeing your Geddy Lee influence, you might like the 4003 for its sound. Otherwise, the MM's would be a good bet. I personally do not like Spectors.
a candiria fan....awesome...
a candiria fan....awesome...thats rare
sorry about that
Since you had two threads going with basically the same subject, the one called "stingray vs. Ric4003 was deleted. You are asking the same question in this thread, with a couple other basses thrown in. In the future, please try not to double post threads of the same subject.
Any problems, feel free to PM me.
Good call, Ryan.
From the basses listed the best would be the Rickenbacker imho.
why ? because the musicman aren't even remotely near the rickenbacker in terms of both quality and sound, and the spector lacks the warmth that the rickenbacker has.
plus the Rickenbacker has the best looks.
In my opinion, the Spector by far
and for why -- I like the sound and playability the most (and I have played all of those basses)
Once again, just my opinion -- as the others have said, only you can decide
The Ric is head and shoulders above the rest.
lets sort something out,
if I, or anyone else in this forum, will tell you one of these basses is any better than the other, will that alone be enough for you to buy it?
I'm pretty sure no, so to answer your question-their all good, all three brands bear high quality construction, hardware, tone and so on.
so the real question would be what feels and sounds the best to you (thats in case you want to buy one of these or just see what the "public" thinks of each of them) as they are all very different basses.
I'll debate that. My Sterling is flawless, and has the nicest finish I've seen in a long time. I see minor flaws in most new Rics I see in the stores. That, and the Ric sound is different than the MM sound - not better, IMO. I find my Sterling to be the most versatile bass I own. BUT, nothing sounds like a Ric - I'm glad I have both.
I won't debate that!
Rickenbacker VS musicman
that would be just like Rolls Royce VS buick..absolutely no competition..
the Rickenbacker is a whole class higher than the musicman.. rick = high end, musicman = middle class..
As an unabashed, loyal Rickenbacker fan and owner of 4001 and 4003 models, I have to say, "who cares what I think?"
If a ____(fill in the blank) fits your hands, style, budget and desire, then that's the bass for you. For sure, I was turned on to the Ric because my two musical heros played one. But I've also tried other basses as well, and liked how they sounded. In the end, the Ric is the most comfortable to play. For me.
Now go forth and play what suits you.
Candiria, I would ignore allodoX's comments. There is nothing wrong with being a Rick fan, but don't let him influence your decision.
Choose the one YOU like better. Choose anything else and you may live to regret it.
I concur - I'm a major Ric fan (and the owner of a 1981 Azureglo 4001), but realize there's more to life than just Rickenbacker!
