    Proper introduction for the Spy v. Spy bass

    I was really having a ball swapping basses last month, and never gave a proper introduction to the latest addition, a Stingray 4HH SLO Special modded stealth black on white that the previous owner named the "Spy v. Spy" bass.

    It has one of the darkest RW fretboards of any MM I have seen, and the Sterling neck plays just superb in my hands. I'm in love.

    Played this bass at practice this week, and with the black Labella tapewounds on it (thanks Manfloozy), it purred like a jaguar.

    Just the right amount of punch when I want it to, but pretty mellow to go with the style of music we mostly play. Whoever did the work on getting this bass into this shape, bravo.

    You're welcome!

    Seriously, glad you're enjoying her. And to give credit where credit is due, my GF gets props for the Spy vs. Spy handle.

    I really like it. I actually prefer it to the Stealths, although it is not very metal...
