Stingray 5 Neck Through

Stingray 5 Neck Through

Regards from Australia.

I just rejoined this forum after a prolonged absence (TBH I couldn’t even remember my former username so have started afresh).

I’ve owned a few EB basses over the years, the only one currently in service is a 2010 Classic 4 string Stingray.

Anyway, I’ve been tempted by a 5 string Stingray again, this time it’s a through neck. I didn’t even know these had been made, and understand these are out of production now. And the one I’m looking at is at a really good price. Unfortunately I can’t get to play before purchase, but it’s a reputable seller.

Would I notice much difference between this and the bolt on version? My previous SR5s were made around 2003 and 2005 respectively. I am really tempted by this one because it’s so cool, at about the price of a regular used bolt on SR5.
