U.S. Manufacturing
24 frets, 2 humbucker humbucker countrv, prampli 18V
Musicman bridge standard
Rglages volume, balance microphones, EQ: bass, lo-med, med-hi, acute
Bolt (5vis)


The handle is a dconcertante ease, but watch out for bread that agree trs well ;-) It is quite thin and rounded.
Access in acute poses no problem.
In terms of ergonomics is the bass balance, I find lgre (I also have a Stingray 5 of the beginning of the 90s, much heavier!)
To get a good sound, you just plug it ;-)


Configuration 2 microphones is more versatile than the Stingray. It goes by without a problem its warm sound groovy slamming (Musicman sound, what!) Only using the legalization of pots on the bass.
I play on a mini Markbass 121P combo, legalization flat on the amp because it rglages the same low trs are effective.
I use it in balance with gnral microphones in the middle, lower back and some hi-med and treble. Thurs fingers and slap only
Musicman sound is rput to be fairly typical. We keep the sound fairly typical granular Stingray but this configuration two microphones adds much more versatility.
J'tais a little skeptical about setting dpart two microphones, afraid that the sound has not dnature but it is not. In short, for those who love the sound Musicman is a joy!


I've had two weeks now and what strikes me most is the power of sound. Good god, adcoiffe! I never jou a powerful instrument before, even my Stingray is ple figure ct.
I do dcolle that only the gain on the amp if not a peak right now!
I love the look even if purists may cry foul = P As I finish is Dargie Delight (martini olive green back and shaped cocktail glasses on the handle )
If c'tait again I repeat the same!
