    New addition



    Didn't think it would be a keeper for life but the HS is all they say it is. My Bongo is MUCH more likely to go now as my Sterling 5HH & Bongo 5HH are a bit too close sonically.

    This is my new #1 in a disco band where I have to slap... better slap tone with that SC at the bridge & room with the SC only at the neck.

    More versatile tonally. Sterling 5HH PDN still for life! ha ha

    KEEPERS FOR LIFE CLUB !!! Post yours too-1979-mocca-2-jpg

    1979 Stingray - Absolutely no "collectors item", because the fretboard isn┤t original, but it sounds unbelievable. It┤s been my main bass for more than 5 years now.

    I feel like a liar. I sold 2 of my keepers for life last month but for good reasons. The DDII Bongo was to fund extra Christmas gifts for the family because this year was going to be a little tight. I miss the bass but it went to a good home and the guy really likes it. The candy apple red one was sold too. I would have kept it but the all rosewood neck order came about and I had to get one. My only knock on the Bongo's is the painted necks. For some reason, I just don't like painted necks on guitars or basses so I basically ordered the same exact bass with a rosewood neck and sold it.

    Jay, you have a game changer with a tremolo. Where did you get a tremolo setup for a reflex?

    It comes from the factory like that. I felt goofy calling it a whammy bar. Sounds to 80's if you say that.

    No, it's the guitar one. When I switched over to Music Man in 2010, I sold off everything from the other brand except for 2 basses that I have had for almost 20 years now. I kept them for sentimental purposes. Last year for Christmas I got my youngest son a Sterling by Music Man Sub Silo 3. At the time he was only 9 but has had a hard time learning to play so I bought another guitar to help him out and because I missed playing guitar too. It was a toss up between the Game Changer and a JP-6 fully loaded in Mystic Dream. This one won out but the Mystic Dream will be next. I had chance to get a BFR Roasted Neck JP6 that was a limited edition so it had the tone block in it and a few other extra goodies but it sold right before I bought my guitar. Since I have had this one though I absolutely love it. The Game Changer plays so freaking good. I now want a Game Changer bass too but that is a ways off. One day though.

    Sorry for a very late reply.

    Yes it is. I said for a long time that I would not gig with that bass since only two exist in that color. But it┤s so darn good that I┤ve started to take her out on pretty much every gig I do.



    A definite keeper. Will never sell her. Best bass ever. There is something very special with those 5-string 20th Anni bases. The mahogany tone block does something with the sound that I can┤t really explain. Love them.

    My Bongo 5HH with Slinkies was a BEAST the last few times I've played it... thought about a big al but I've changed my mind... I'll get a Big Al SSS 4 if I see one, in maple but I'm not selling anything to get it

    With me, I probably will stick with the Small-EQ Bongo, My Big Al5 bfr and my first ever MM, the Ray4. I am not planning on selling one of the others now, but who knows what the future holds....

    To my knowledge there is only two trans black Stingrays. I have one. Tony Levin the other. Sure it was a trans black?
