I've been moving off less played instruments to fund a few that I really want - the fewer but better philosophy. To that end, Brown Santa dropped off a minty used EBMM StingRay 5H today, one of the limited run from 2014 that have an all rosewood neck. The feel of the unfinished rosewood on these is amazing.

I'm taking it to practice tonight, so I'll have a sound report later. More pics in my profile.

Nice. looking forward to the report.

Wow.

The SR5 was a big hit last night, and that was with roundwounds (I usually play flats.) It sits in the mix beautifully. And that neck! The feel of the rosewood under my thumb is amazing.

I think this is a keeper, and it's inspiring me to give rounds a try on one or two basses for some variety.

Unfinished rosewood? Won't rounds eat those up pretty quick?

I assume no more than any other rosewood fingerboard. By unfinished, I was referring to the back/shaft of the neck.
