    After enduring the agony of delayed shipping, my first Stingray showed up today! It's killing me to not plug it in yet so all my Zoom meetings have had the camera off and mic muted , can't put it down. Without getting it on the scale it's definitely lighter than my Heritage 150 (Les Paul style) and the balance is the best I've had on a bass.

    Acoustically, it's very clear and has great sustain. Fit and finish is immaculate as expected. My daughter who doesn't have much interest in my gear even said "wow it's pretty, looks like it was dipped in glass".

    Typically the first thing I do when I get anything new is take it apart and look for ways to personalize it or make it better. Looking at this though, I just can't bring myself to do it.

    Great looking bass!
    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.

    The Stingray is such a great bass directly from the factory, the only thing that might need changing is the strings... however, EB strings are my preferred sets, so there's nothing left to change

    Would really enjoy seeing more photos-- LOVE that finish!

    Did a quick scratch track with it the other day and they definitely got the electronics right. Tons of range in the onboard preamp. I'll get some better pics up the weekend.
