Hmm, I like the theories Pete. Especially the j bass, hard attack theory, because that is me. I loved my stingray HH but I would struggle to hear the g string at gigs, especially when the adrenaline (or beer meter) was up.

I also liked the narrower spacing and feel of my jazz basses, but I imagine stingray players would be able to find a lot of comfortable P necks, and P bass players maybe can't gel with the stingray tone? Just a theory....

There are so many different neck profiles and spacing options out there though that I think everyone can find something they gel with!

dear lord... that looks like my a carbon copy of my poor old '86 Ray that I sold and got beaten to death by someone with a penchant for sanding tools...

is that a trans cherry red kinda colour or opaque?
It's slightly transparent... very thick finish too, a bit has chipped off near the neck pocket.

Oh wow, red is so pretty. I don't think I've actually seen a red Stingray before.

Why just see a red one? You can own a red one!

Haha! Because I just traded a pretty sparkly green one in on a Dingwall... and I have two others (not red).
