    Hi BD,

    Your Sterling in Pearl Blue with a maple neck was born on 29 July, 1993 in the San Luis Obispo, California factory and was originally sold to Music Box in Hamden, CT. The wood is probably ash. Looks like your Sterling will be enjoying a birthday soon!

    Best regards,
    Beth

    Sterling bass is 7/29/93 Sorry Gav! The Sterling from the era would of been more than likely ash. Poplar and Alder were available and used sparingly.

    Stingray Pacific Blue Burst is 11/17/04

    Honeyburst/ white gaurd '89 (I believe) : 52714
    Trans Blue/ FL / white gaurd '88 (I believe) : 50606

    the trans blue was originally a fretless. I have since put a moses neck on her. I still have the original neck (no flogging please)!

    Talking

    I just looked at the neck off the trans blue beasty and it has 2 dates .

    the first is ink stamped, the second in blue ink pen;

    1:jun 1 1988
    2:6|13|1988

    there is also a small "s" tapped into the wood as well as a capital "K" .

    Three for Beth...

    Hi, Beth -

    I'd love to know the pedigrees of my three basses:

    Sterling: F04828 (should have been shipped to Sam Ash)
    SR5: E18553
    Bongo: F08266 (I think it was sold through Bass Central)

    Thanks!

    thanks for the welcome Rod... lots of very cool things here. I feel like I belong here with all the other EBMM bass freeeks! I am surprised that this place remained unknown to me for sooooo long....

    [QUOTE=Rod Trussbroken]higher1,

    I would have thought 50606 was a 1989 Bass. The serial must not be chronological order. Can you remember which date was on the neck and which was on the body?

    04/3/89
