    Not to be a jerk, but: radius is 1/2 of your diameter, so if you're looking to make an 11" radius gauge, would you not cut it from a 22" diameter circle?

    I recently picked up a Stingray 4; the previous owner claimed it to be a 1992 and I'm guessing that's probably close. It's a Blueburst, lacquer-finished neck, and the bridge has mutes.

    I've played SR5's almost exclusively since January 1993, and I currently own 3 (2 fretted, 1 fretless). Back in the late 80's-early 90's, it appeared that the bass world was headed toward the...

    Different strokes for different folks.

    I've been playing Stingray 5's almost exclusively since '93, in large part due to the neck profile/string spacing.

    My '88 SR5 weighs 9.2 lbs, it's the lightest one I've personally come across. Good to know there are a few more out there, I wouldn't mind picking up another.

    I currently play in 1 cover band and work with a local songwriter in 2 different projects. I also take the occasional sub gig. And yet, I still don't work/play every weekend.

    I own both. IMO there is a difference, but not so much once you put them in the mix.

    I'm currently running at 80% EBMM (4 out of 5), but they do about 98% of my gigs.

    I took up playing a 5 in 1993 (an SR5, in fact!) after having played 4-strings previously for over 20 years.

    This might not apply to the OP's situation, but one thing that helped me make the...

    FYI: there's another bass just like this (Stealth 'Ray 4 SLO, ebony fingerboard) at the GC in Greenwood, IN.
    I have no commercial interest, just thought I'd pass along the info. It's a sweet bass;...

    ^^^ +1

    Actually, 5-string players are secure enough in their real man-ness that they don't feel the incessant need to talk about it.

    Another oddball here. Both of my fretted SR5's ('88 & '92) have hard-finished necks, and I'll probably hang on to 'em 'til the bitter end for that reason alone.

    I've been a Stingray 5 player since 1993; I own 3 Stingray 5's (2 fretted and a fretless). I own multiple SR5's because I'm comfortable playing them and I know how to make them work for me. I've...

    Backagain1: The consensus on TalkBass seems to be to that the 310 cab won't replace a 410, but to think of it as a "super 210". I would have to agree. I call it the "Baby Bear" cab (think...

    Thanks. The SR5s have served me well, although I admit I've been gassing for an HS or HH Sterling 5.

    I've been an SR5 player for the past (going on) 17 years, and IMO-IME you can approximate a P-bass sound with some EQ tweaks and good muting techniques.
