    I also know the trans-reds...

    In 1986 was Candy available, also a blue color (not the blueburst).

    There certainly is a "red" as I own one, yes they are a bit few and far between, but red is out there.

    Hi there

    I wonder if anyone is able to shed some light on the colour of my recently acquired '88 Stingray.

    The neck pocket simply has "red" written in it, but I wasn't sure whether the actual colour name is a bit more descriptive than just "red"

    Thanks for your help

    I have yet to see an early EBMM that was just stamped RED. From around 1987 or 1988, the Trans Reds I've seen usually have a stamp that reads REDT. (Earlier ones have no stamp indicating the colour.) It's difficult to tell from the pic, but can you see wood grain through the finish? If not, it's an opaque colour.

    Your best bet is posting the serial number here:

    Someone from Customer Service will be along with the info.

    I have Big Al H coming my way. It's in this cool color that looks like a steel blue under some light, greenish under other light, or just plain gray/silver sometimes. This bass that was on ebay is the exact same color I am trying to describe. What color is it?

    Thanks!!

    Hi guys I've just picked up another Stingray, a 4H 3EQ from 2014 in white. It came from the bass player of The Marmozets who supported Muse last year.

    Apart from a good clean it needs some dings repaired. It's a slightly off white, solid though, not pearlescent etc. Can anyone advise on how to get the best colour match please?

    Hey all, trying to find the four string version of this. The guy selling it called it "Stealth Gold", and I was told "Kandy Pagan Gold", but can't find anything like it!

    That looks like True Gold to me but with black hardware from a stealth model. Do you have the serial number of that one? If so you can call customer service and give them the serial # and they can tell you all about it.
