Pretty cool lookin' bass, Brad. The Big Al's remind me of a Teisco-Del-Rey-meets Vox Phantom-IV [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif] . We want a gig report!

Sterling Ball has just introduced a new Dargie-2 version of the Big Al bass, to be shown in Nashville at Summer NAMM.

He also announced that they will be introducing a 5 string version of the Big Al in January at the 2010 NAMM show.

Photos of the Dargie-2 Big Al are posted on the Music Man forum.

Actually, any of their instruments will be available with the Dargie 2 package - special green paint, ebony fingerboard and special fingerboard inlays.

They also announced the SLO Special Stingrays, Stingrays with a Sterling neck!

I'm thinking of getting all that in one bass if possible.

Hmmmm, a SLO Stingray just might get me back into the EBMM club [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif] .

Slightly off-topic, has anyone else noticed that Sterling has lost a bunch of weight? Lookin' good, BP.

I've been biting my tongue every time I read this thread. Nothing personal and to each his own and all that but... the Bongo wasn't ugly enough?

So you've never liked any strangely shaped basses Butch?

Maybe a few, but nowadays they have to look mostly classic. My Hoyt is a bit different, but not too much so. I'm way down in number from my days of collecting, only 4 basses and the Ergo EUB right now. I've been wanting an SR5 for a while, but it will have to be the right one, both in looks and weight.

I believe there's a Big Al 5 in the works. That should be an interesting bass.

Is there a Big Al fretless?
