New Guitar!! Music Man Stingray Bass

Well, I decided to see if I could get my awesome sales guy, Devin, at Guitar Center to take back my Schecter 5 string bass and swap it for an Ernie Ball Music Man 4 string Stingray. Luckily he was able to pull it off for me even though I was beyond my 30 day return time period. All I had to do was pay the difference on the Stingray.

The Music Man is a much better bass, as you might expect. ;) The resonance and tone is far superior to the Schecter and there is minimal buzzing. This thing plays like a dream and sounds so good plugged in. It has active treble, bass and mid knobs and a single bridge humbucker. Despite only having one pickup the controls on this thing allow for a surprising amount of different tones.

Like I said in my Schecter review a while back, this will mostly be used for my own personal recordings and for guest bass players that come over to jam. It's a pretty nice bass that should cover those functions adequately, I think.

All in all, this was a super upgrade and probably the bass guitar I should have gotten in the first place. ;)
