    The Ernie Ball 2018 Stingray Special

    That didn’t take long... https://www.talkbass.com/threads/2018-ebmm-stingray-special-4h-charcoal-sparkle-yes-one-of-the-new-ones.1354375/

    I’m weird

    I had the exact problem, finding the body/neck balance peculiar and wondering why they put the thinner neck on the bigger body? I found the right Jazz two years ago kind of by accident, its a 2015 USA Std (though not all of these models feel like mine), and that’s after having owned an original 1964 and a fair few custom shops. They were all excellent basses but the balance and feel of my current Jazz is perfect for me and quite different to the majority. Though I fancy a LPB Jazz too, I doubt I’ll be selling my current one unless it’s equal in feel.

    WITHDRAWN - Music Man Old Smoothie StingRay - Chocoburst

    Withdrawn, whilst I come to my senses 🤔

    WITHDRAWN - Music Man Old Smoothie StingRay - Chocoburst

    That’d match my other Ray nicely. 👍

    Yes, it was a Leo Fender prototype. Explained here:

    WITHDRAWN - Music Man Old Smoothie StingRay - Chocoburst

    Yes, another in a long line of killer basses I’ve let go of, falling victim to my minimalistic urges. One day I’ll learn that I just can’t handle owning more than 3 basses, but in the meantime it’s been fun owning them! 🤣
  8. **NOW WITHDRAWN** - this is far too good a bass to be letting go of for the wrong reasons Based on a prototype Leo Fender made for Sterling Ball, these are very special basses, awesome neck and voiced beautifully, literally smoother than a regular Stingray. This edition was only made in 2016, for the Stingray’s 40th anniversary. It’s in excellent condition, not one issue. It’s wearing flatwound strings in the photos but I have the original rounds and will swap them over.  Comes with the original hard case and shipping box.  Weighs 4.275kg / 9.42lbs ***TRADES*** - no trades by post please, I need to play it first. I’m only interested in: A rosewood board/dot neck Custom Shop Jazz Bass, Lake Placid Blue USA ‘64 Reissue Jazz Bass Lull Jazz Bass (possibly...) Cheers. My feedback:
  9. Quite a long shot, but one to keep the wife happy... (long story ) I’d be interested in a LPB Custom Shop Jazz or the 64 US AV Reissue. Cheers.

    Great colour choice, I’d quite like that one hanging on my wall There are some tasty upgrades but it’s the weight that’s probably got me drooling the most....

    I’m liking the Jet Black and Burnt Apple too, plus the two Sparkles. I’ve already got a white Ray, which is weird as I usually don’t like owning white basses, but she’s a good’n. Tough choice for you though with the Charcoal, wonder which you’ll get... cos we all know you’re getting one! I’ll be driving past Bass Direct in September, that could be dangerous...

    BAREKNUCKLE Vs NORDY

    My NP4 was too polite for my tastes. The BK will be more traditional, I had a 58 which was just that.

    New American Artist Flea Signature?

    Apparently he used the P on a few tracks on Freaky Styley too. Vid of the P Bass getting used, after a few tracks \/
  15. I’m after the Fralin stock version set, not the +5% or +10%. (I’d also consider SD Antiquity, Fender Custom Shop etc. in the interim). Cheers.
