    Great Early StingRay Footage!

    A few years back I posted some good YouTube footage of Waylon Jennings' bass player on his StingRay. Since then I've noticed lots of clear footage has popped up from his 1983 tour and it's a real treat to see it (you will have to skip ahead on the second video...)

    So often the single H StingRay is labelled as a slap/funk machine, but for me it's the ultimate country bass.... Teddy Gentry (Alabama) liked it back in those days, too.

    I've seen Rays in pretty much any context. But yeah, it does the slap/funk thing pretty well!
    I love Red Paint.

    I'm not big on country music, but this reminded me of a live video I've found of Hoyt Axton:

    Another awesome black/maple Stingray in country action. It was never a one trick pony bass in my eyes.
