A truly amazing instrument.
Probably my favourite classic bass ever. From the humble beginnings I always dreamt of one and when I finally got one in 2014 and it subverted my expectations! It's the instrument that really cuts through the mix and just slays in the concert environment. It's always in tune and performes great in many different alternative/dropped tunings. I just can't stop playing on it, even after almost 10 years.

The SR5 has its own special charm. It doesn't sound like anything else, but it cuts through a mix on stage like nothing else. It also has an absolutely unbeatable neck, with a distinctive gunstock oil finish that makes it superfast and comfortable. I picked up my 1998 model, which is a 3-color vintage sunburst with rosewood fretboard, as a consignment, for about $900. It hadn't been touched by the original owner since purchase, and now new models cost almost double that. One of the best value purchases I ever made.

Perfect 5-string bass
I already had some 5-strings (Lag, Rickenbacker, Framus Double Neck with 12-string, Warwick Thumb 5, Fender Jazz Bass). The Sting Ray 5 is the most comfortable of all. It's not too-heavy and plays great. I have it since 1995, but I've hardly used it for years - what a shame! I use it with regular steel strings (045 - 125)
