My first musicman! I've been wanting one
since my very first bass lesson, because my teacher (Ghislain
St-Pierre) had one.
But I did not wanted any musicman. I wanted
the real deal: two-band EQ, old bridge with mutes, vintage
(small) fretwire, etc...Basically I wanted an old one.
Because the good ones are becoming harder and harder to
find, I was patiently waiting for THE stingray to appear.
And out of nowhere, the Musicman company came up with
the Classic line which is essentially an old musicman
but made with today's expertise and attention to detail.
I jumped on the occasion and ordered my first Musicman!
So here it is: Classic Stingray 4, tobacco
sunburst, birdseye maple neck and fingerboard, bridge
with mutes, two-band EQ, vintage radius and small fretwire.
The perfect Stingray!
The bass is super punchy and really stands
out in the mix. This is THE bass that makes soundmen's
Thanks to David Jolin of Musique
Victor who made it possible.
