: The stingray fits rock very well, with a proeminent low end. I never tried de 5 string version (I was lucky to find a 4 string left handed version in Brasil!!!)
Good to hear another lefty out their I also own a musicman bass (5 stringer)
It's a real pleasure to play and would totally recommend it to any other southpaw intrested in the 5 string concept .
: : : The battery access of the stingray is very well built. It moves out of the cavity, and itīs very easy to change it.
: : : Of course itīs a detail. Sound is the question. Iīve never tried G&L, so I canīt evaluate it. On the other hand, Stingray rocks IMHO and itīs electronics are not noisy (this I can tell for sure).
: : : Peace,

: : : : Looking to upgrade my bass and would like to hear from those with experience with these two basses.
: : : : I've read that both basses are solid instruments and adaptable for many playing styles and applications, enhanced by the pick-ups configurations that can be dialed in with the toggle switches. The G&L can go passive too and work without a battery.
: : : : Also I've heard that the G&L electronics can hum or be so noisy that this bass might be hard to deal with in the studio, which would really suck! Is this anyone's experience? I also read that the battery access plate is screwed direclty into the wood.
: : : : The G&L looks really nice, has dual pick-ups vs. one and has been quoted a little bit cheaper to me that the Stingray 5.
: : : : The only negative regarding the Stingray 5 was that the tone can be a little hot sometimes.
: : : : Comments please.
: : JP,
: : Thanks for the info. Is the Stingray 5 tone as adaptable as they say? Any problems?
