    Neat.

    My bank account is safe. If that sparkly St Vincent was a bass, that might not be the case.

    Did you guys notice the changes to the Stingray 4 and 5?

    Neodymium magnets, 18 volt preamps? Sound familiar?

    Yeah, I noticed. I also noticed the roasted necks on all instruments (except Bongos). And, I especially noticed that the basses get unfigured while the guitars get figured as standard. Ahem.

    I have been asking for roasted maple necks as an option since I got my first one in 2010 and am stoked to see them now. At the same time, I’m kind of bummed because I was planning on buying another Game Changer this year as well as a Stingray 4H Black with a standard maple neck and fretboard. To get them, I will now need to buy either new old stock or used. I hate buying used though.

    I've always admired how EBMM constantly innovates and pushes the contemporary envelope. I'm thrilled to see the Stingray get an 18V preamp and lighter hardware. One of the best changes I made to my Caprice was adding light weight tuners. But now this has me wondering...will the Sterling be updated this year as well?

    So there is now a BongRay! Not sure if it would warrant getting one since I have stingrays and bongos. But do want to check it out.
