I’m not one of those people that wants basses just to have them. I have 2 electric basses and that’s good for me. My Fender Jazz is versatile and fits in just about any music genre, and my Daisy Rock is great for when I have shows that my need a little more volume and bass (It’s completely active, so it’s a little louder than my Fender). I buy basses when I think I need them…and I have a bass that I need.
When I decide to buy a bass, it’s for the tone. And I have found a bass with a really nice wompy, funky tone. And that is a Music Man Stingray. I used to think these basses sounded awful, but then I realized it’s just different. THis bass is made up of an Ash body, birdseye or flamed maple neck, maple or rosewood fingerboard, an attached neck, and 1 standard Music Man humbucking pickup set near the bridge. There are three knobs on the bass. One volume, a treble cut/boost, and bass cut/boost. All of these things create a truly unique bass.
If someone ever needed to spice up their bass collection, this would definitely be a contender. Haven’t heard it? No problemo! Here’s a youtube demo video for you to check out!
