"Best StingRay Yet"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This latest iteration of the EBMM classic flagship bass incorporates the improved features of the new Cutlass and Caprice passive basses (i.e, super smooth neck heel and comfortable neck) with the quiet, versatile Neodymium pickups that have, up to now, been stock primarily on Bongo basses. These improvements, along with the use of lighter, resonant swamp ash for the bodies, makes the StingRay Special THE bass for fans of the model looking for improve ergonomics and a generally more vintage-type sound than the classic StingRay.This bass seems more versatile to me, sound-wise, than the original StingRay, because of the new pickups, which aren't quite as trebly as the Alnico humbuckers. I still love that classic StingRay sound, but imagine the new version of the bass will provide players with a few more tonal colors for their sound palettes. The neck on these basses have been getting a lot of attention for their comfort and playability. Believe the hype! Plus, the grains evident on these necks are unbelievable, making them beautiful as well as functional.
R&B, bass & drum, grooves.
