    The highest praise

    I play in 2 bands, one classic rock, oldies, country. The other dance, pop, funk, rock. In both I've had sound guys and fellow musicians tell me, "hey, I love that Rick, Fender, whatever, but that Music Man just sounds awesome". Yep. I love all my basses, but my Sterling 5H is the ONE.

    2011 Classic Stingray 5H Lake Tahoe Blue

    Yep got the same compliment...played a Ric for quite some time in our band then got a Stingray Classic..never looked back.. Now I have 4 MM basses... Not slamming any other manufacturers but just get the compliments from my band members with the Stingrays...

    Mine was sort of a backhand compliment. I always showed up with my Stingray and one time I decided to mix it up and brought a custom P bass, the guitarist immediately commented that he likes the Stingray better.

    Sometimes with my cover band (the situation goes as followed) we will be working on something new and the Stingray gets a bit much for that present setting so I will swap over to my J for a while. The stingray is always welcomed back with a warm reception

    I always liked it when I was introduced as "And on the Musicman Bass..." praise enough and job done.
