    NBD: Musicman Stingray HS (2007 Limited Edition)

    This is the 3rd 'Ray to come into my possession.
    But this one has 3 things my others didn't.
    A matching headstock.
    A maple fretboard.
    And most importantly, 2 pickups.
    1 humbucker (bridge) and 1 single-coil (neck).

    Beautifully built and finished, I'm not sure if it's colour is Pacific Blueburst or Blue Dawn.
    Being a limited edition, it comes in a blue taco shell case.
    Which is attractive but a little weighty.
    It also has the date "2007", inlaid in the 12th fret position.
    With L and E (limited edition) postioned withing the 2 zeros.
    Not sure if I like that, or the large black postion dots.
    But hey-ho, it's no biggy.
    Overall though, I really like the look of this bass.
    Apart from a small ding on the headstock and some tiny varnish scuffs, on the back of the body, this bass is in immaculate condition.
    Every pic, including mine, that I've seen of this bass, doesn't really show that it has a teal hint, to it's blue colour.
    Or that it has a subtle sparkle.

    The controls give you a lot of tonal scope.
    With the usual vol, mid, bass and treble, rotary knobs, you also get a 5-way switch.
    This gives either pickup singly, plus various coil tap/phase combo options.
    So, thin and edgy, thick and rounded or ringing and transparent, are all available here.

    Sorry if it sounds sexist, but this is a man's bass.
    Incredibly solid in build and tone.
    A little weighty, with a substanial neck.
    But the way it balances and hangs, makes for a very comfortable bass, to play.
    For the past couple of years, I've only played jazz necks and was a little unsure about going back to a Stingray.
    But as soon as I put it on and started playing, I liked the feel and the playability.
    The way the bass is designed, kind of removes much of the strain of a chunky(ish) neck.
    It's an individual thing and it really is, suck it and see.
    This is a proper bass.
    Workman like, with lots of class and a little glamour.

    Wow. That's some seriously impressive paint. Sweet.

    The maple FB is what makes it a home run, though. That thing must look totally killer under the lights.

    And after all, I don't think Stinrgray´s are only for the men...
