    There are a few colors where it seems you can choose Rosewood or Maple in the configuration section. These tend to be the more traditional colors. But most only come with a specific fretboard.

    I love the Charcoal sparkle, but something about those natural basses with the roasted maple fretboard just makes my heart melt. 2018 will be a good year!

    I just wish the burnt apple looked better on the SR5. The huge PG covers up most of it. Looks great on the SR4 though!

    I b——ed about the price increase, I admit it, but the Specials will easily hang with the “boutiques” in the $3-4K range. Dat neck!!

    DAMN RIGHT I'll post pics when it hits my house! The site told me to expect it around late September.
    So, I played one at a local shop and I'm impressed with it. What a great keeping that in mind. I think I still favor the sound/feel of my 30th Aniv. Stingray 5.

    Now dont everyone yell at me. It's all personal, but I'll say its an amazing bass and I look forward to when mine arrives.

    But I think this 30th Aniv. is gonna have that special place for me....

    Also, really can't decide on the H vs HH. An HS option would have made this easy. I feel like I want the neck pickups for more mellow options (as well as a thumb rest), but i'm not a fan of the look.

    Tough decisions ahead...
    I had the same thoughts - couldn't decide so ordered an aqua sparkle as 4HH and a Cruz teal as 5HH - I'm told to expect them possibly mid August - can't wait!!

    Here's to hoping we get a SLO option in the coming years. Damn my small hands :-p

    After playing the new Ray I feel it is destined to be a new classic. It feels like as big of a breakthrough as the cobalt flats(which still don't get the attention they deserve, IMHO). :-)

    Great videos! Everywhere I turn on social media someone is reviewing the stingrays. Awesome job of getting the word out. A plus one on the SLO special option. My jacked up hand due Ulnar nerve issues just works better with a narrower nut width.

    I'm a left hander who plays right handed, so I guess that makes me confused.
