    such look alike sometimes at first or second glance [and all
    look alike on stage].

    This one isn't going anywhere soon. I'm not cured, but this one has been serious GAS relief for me. I've been told by a few different sound engineers that it's the best live bass tone they've ever heard.

    Here are my two keepers. My Stingray (DOB 12/3/99), which I bought new in 2000. I had only ever played one other Stingray up until then, when I was in high school in the early '80s, and I hated it. I walked into a music store in 2000 with no intentions of buying anything, and walked out half an hour later with this gorgeous orange thing. It had a white pickguard originally, but I switched it out to tortoiseshell as soon as I could. I have the original guard, and a Vintage White Pearl one as well.

    The other is a 1977 Fender Jazz Bass that I bought in '99. It looked like someone had played it for about 6 months and then cased it up for the next 22 years. Now it has some honest wear, all from me. It had a black pickguard, which I still have, but I torted it right away. This has been my main bass for a long time, but I think I'll work the Stingray and my new SBMM Ray34 fretless in a LOT now.

    I like tortoise. When I bought a new car a few years ago, my drummer said "Didn't they have one with a tortoiseshell pickguard?" He knows me too well!

    I love my 'Ray's. They are some of the best basses i've EVER owned.

    The 4 banger now has flatwounds on it. The 5HS is Ceramic so it sounds like a Sterling 5, and the STingray 5 is just awesome.

    I'm working on making it more spacious. But I've got guitars, basses, trombones, amps, an electric piano, more amps... amp stands, guitar stands, trombone stands, guitar repair and finishing supplies, etc etc etc.

    Right now I'm trying to decide if I should put a pearloid guard on the SR5 in blue, or keep it as is. it's got a white pickup, so pearloid might not look that good.
