    Any other basses in the BFR room that may show up this year?

    I hope so and I understand the hesitation by EB after the Cutlass and Caprice models that didn't really sell well as expected. But this is a Passive Stingray which is a whole different proposition, I have waited for this for a long time.

    Blue with a maple fretboard. I really like that Blue but the Burgundy with the Rosewood board is pretty damn sexy.

    Hmm, I might be interested in a long scale version of this particular passive Stingray, even though I'm gassing for a new Special. Can't wait to hear it either way.

    I've played these basses twice now and I am knocked out by the huge sound. The playability is excellent with familiar MM spacing .The compactness encourages you to fly all over this thing.It may fit in a guitar gig bag but will definitely fit in an overhead bin while flying.Somehow they managed to keep the string tension just right despite the shorter scale.This is a winner!

    This sounds great! Can't wait to play one. Logging in after a LONG "life happens" hiatus. Great to see so many familiar names. Looking forward to catching up on the latest offerings.

    RobertB, nice to see you back!

    Didn't you originally own this?



    Well, after a few years of residing in Spain it eventually found its way to me. Great bass!

    Thanks, liverbird. Wow, yes. What a beauty, and what a fun day it was the day I bought it. It was at a show/event in L.A. Got to meet BP and a guy from the forum who was a regular at the time, Rex - not sure if he's still around. Hard to believe how long ago that was, already. Crazy. Thanks for saying hi and for posting the pic. Made me happy to see it. That's the thing with these basses - they bring us a lot of joy, you know? I've got my eye on something very similar over at Sweetwater.

    Can we move this post as it doesn't belong here. Forum rules apply!

    Looking at the description for this guy again, I hadn't noticed before that it will be passive. With the 3 switched pickup output options and the bass boost, this should be something really unique and cool, even before factoring in the 30 inch scale. I'm really looking forward to trying that out. I've always found that to have a great effect on playability. I've always assumed that that's not only because of the shorter fret width, but also because it seems to me that a shorter string needs a lower tension to resonate at the same frequency as a longer string of the same gauge, making it more "bendy". That may not be accurate, but would seem to make sense to me.

    This is a wonderful offering.

    My sons are men now but my youngest was playing a regular scale Big Al when he was just a little 11 year old boy. The shorter scale would have been easier for his hands. That being said, he did just fine. But, this is a great addition to the ebmm lineup.

    Is it true that these short scales were already available for pre-order and the limited run is already sold out? If so hope that means there was enough interest that they will become a regular offering.

    Yes, the initial run was very limited. The actual release is in October from what I have seen.
