  1. New bass! My Powder Blue SLO Special StingRay is here.

    My new StingRay 4 HH SLO Special is finally here. I unboxed it, checked it over, and ran through a couple of hours of songs with it tonight.

    THIS is the bass I've always been looking for.

    Yep, totally normal.

    I LOVE the oil and wax finish on the back of Music Man basses. I have a '97 Stingray that I bought new, 20 years ago, and that finish is still just awesome to play on.

    Thank goodness for the Sterling 4 neck

    I just wrapped up a 10-hour day learning songs for a new band I'm joining. It's a wonderful opportunity for me, a great band... but I'm facing the pressure of picking up a LOT of new songs quickly....

    Is the Starry Night PDN finish available on a Caprice?
