Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray 4 string Reviews
I was looking for a bass that would stand up for many many years and good for slap funk, finger rock, and perhaps some jazz here and their.I had saved up some cash doing odd jobs and the Musicman was my first choice. I went to the local guitar center and saw a beautiful burnt apple stingray(its like a sparkle red-burst not sun burst though) And so i started slapping it. It played really good and sounded even better. Lucky for me my friend also was looking for a guitar. He decided to buy an american deluxe telecaster. We talked them down real low because we were buying two expensive guitars. So i managed to get this stingray for $900.
This bass should be bought to a person who will use it. Its not one of those basses you buy and dont play.I bought this bass hoping it will last me the rest of my life(im 16 years old). Maybe in the future i will get a black perliod pick gaurd($50) and a graphite neck ($500) Then that will be in my opinion, the perfect bass. If you experiance the same pickup problems the bartolini is an excelent solution. With out the bartolini i would give this bass a 4. But with the bartolini its a definate 5.Alex Landry rated this unit on 2002-06-09.
