The new Music Man Classic StingRay's Got Me Thinking | February 2, 2010 We just received Music Man's new classic StingRay basses; beautiful reissues of the original StingRay's that also combine a few modern updates. I was especially excited by the cool colors, string mutes, and the 5-string, which is more similar to the 4 than any previous StingRay.What other classic basses are just dying for a similar treatment? Any much-loved vintage instruments that need a freshening up and release? My vote: the Guild Starfire. How about you?
