I have both and prefer the versatility of the HH. I am not a slapper though, so I am not worried about hitting the neck pickup.
Have a Sterling Ray34.
Yeah, that’s right. I forgot. You’ll love the EBMM.
Andy told me the necks on the Special is about as perfect as I could hope for.
I’d absolutely go for the HH. But yeah, I don’t slap.
Andy’s a good man. I trust his experienced judgment. Looking forward to seeing pics.
Only if you like silky smooth roasted maple
My wife saw the email from Andy telling me the shipping particulars. She said, “Why didn’t you tell me you bought a new bass?” I said, “I was going to when I got in from work”. She asked how much and I told her, less than $50.00 a month. She was okay with it but did ask what I was going to do with the other 7 I have. I told her the proper number of basses is N+1 with N being the number you currently have. She just laughed. I also told her I could be using money for crack, porn, beer, and partying. She is probably going to give me stink-eye for a day or so.
Man, don’t forget to have stuff shipped to work. Also, how the yell did she see your email? No, no, no!
As you know buttery smooth neck is not for everyone, some just either don’t like it or don’t deserves it, lol.
We don’t share the secret formula to anyone, that’s the first rule of GAS club
Well, the StingRay originally scheduled to be delivered today is going to be delivered tomorrow. The strap will make it today. I got an Ernie Ball strap to go with the Ernie Ball MM Stingray. Seemed appropriate.
This is genius. Much better than telling the full price
I thought so, that was why I told her that way. I have been selling automobiles for the last 33 years and I did learn a thing or two about how to present pricing.
I think, when I assure myself that the StingRay Special is as good as I think it will be, I will be selling my LTD-B-50FM, Ibanez SR300, Vintage VJ74 Re-issue, Sterling Ray34, GK BackLine 115, Ampeg BA108, and maybe the Peavey Basic 112. I will keep the StingRay Special and my two Warmoth builds. I considered giving two of the basses away and spread word locally but no one took me up on my offer. But I really don’t need so much bass related crap and by selling these, I can pay off the StingRay quickly.
The Cycle of Bass Life
FedEx delivered it at 10:15am. I have to work until 7pm. Reminds me of Carly Simon’s song “Anticipation”.
I would go Tom Petty. The waiting is the hardest part.
I am watching my new bass work its way across the country. Feels like they use snails to transport these things.
Try waiting for a delivery from New Zealand.
Almost a month of USPS limbo.
