    That is an *awesome* looking bass, and you know it will sound fantastic . Having serious Bongo envy - generally strong GAS all around lately. But the maple neck with binding...oh my...

    I'm not sure what advice to give you in this situation but if you decided to sell it I would find a way to give it a home in NJ - would go great with my '88!

    In all seriousness, despite the finish...

    Heinz! The emerald green sparkle Bongo is a looker, but Heinz stands alone. I've been searching for a trans green Stingray for years because of that bass.

    Would visions of a Heinz colored...

    I had to go way back in the memory banks - could count 27 that I distinctly remember, but there were periods where I was trading things that hadn't actually arrived yet, so it may have been higher. ...

    Some of the visible colors from the videos posted on the Music Man instagram account are absolutely amazing.

    Based on the demos so far (including the ones on social media) it sounds like the 2018...

    Beautiful bass - bet it thumps! That and inca silver are my two favorite pre-EBMM finishes.

    Enjoy it in good health!

    Scott - you can have dibs if I ever lose my mind. This one is as good as any of the great basses you and I have swapped over the years.

    Thanks everybody! I have a history of not holding onto things for long, but as I’ve gotten older and my situation has stabilized, I’ve been able to hold onto a few basses, even as I try other ones...

  12. The universe unfolds as it should (early Stingray 5 content)

    So a couple weeks ago I picked up two very nice Music Man Basses - a Stingray 4 2-banded and a cool medallion gold Sterling. The Stingray ended up being cool but not cool - yes it was a 2 band and...

    Thanks everybody!

    The finish issues are some pretty serious mojo Jack, but not in a bad way, at least not as bad as the white pickguard. My spelling was atrocious in my OP - it looks like the bass...

    What a looker! My favorite all-time 'Ray was almost the same bass, only a little newer. Still miss that one - there's just something about the 2-band and the matte guard that get me every time.

    That makes the tone (and playing) in these clips that much more impressive - both basses have a very "finished" sound to them. If you had told me that had been recorded through a nice DI, compressed...

    Can't believe it's been 10 years. I originally ordered a 2-band Dargie Stingray with a non-matching headstock. Before they were delivered I encountered some financial difficulties and had to sell...

    I guess this is more "wait and hope" than an actual question, but is there any chance of the Reflex/Big Al electronics surfacing in another instrument, like the Bongo, somewhere down the line? The...

    It is in fantastic shape - just a little belt buckle wear on the back. The neck feels almost like satin - more finish than the modern "unfinished" necks but not as much as waxier finish from earlier...
