According to the SN database this serial number predates the first model shipped from the factory. Are the serial numbers chronological?

    I bought mine I think in '88 or '89 from a drummer who decided not to be a bass player after all. I paid $500 for it and it was mint. Now about 2,000 gigs later, it's cosmetically hammered, but still a great sounding bass and still my #1 live performance axe.

    I was hoping someone could shed some light on it's actual birth date.

    Thanks a million,

    Rick,

    No, the numbers are not at all chronological. The completion date of your StingRay 5 is 8/8/88 (nice date to be "born"). It is white (or at least it was) with a rosewood board, correct?

    Good find on that bass! Music Man basses are meant to be workhorses, a "workingman's bass" and it sounds like yours has proven that.

    All the best,

    Dan

    Re: This one's been around the block

    Thanks for the prompt and informative response, Dan. 8/8/88 huh? Wow, interesting!

    I'll try to get a photo up so you can have a look at this "road warrior." It ain't pretty, but it still sounds great. By the way, it was a pale yellow when new, not white, and getting more yellow every day.

    Thanks again,

    Rick

    P.S. Does Dave Nelson still work at the SLO office? He was always very kind when I used to come through there with The Bonedaddys. If he's still around please say hi for me and tell him I've still got the same great 5 string.

    Rick, yes, some of the "whites" were really never white - they started off slightly yellow and got yellower over time with the finish we used in those days.

    Dave Nelson no longer works here - he took a position elsewhere. I still see him from time to time so I will give him the message.

    muggsy, thanks for throwing your serial numbers into the pile. Sorry it took so long to get you the build dates:

    F00092 was completed on 3/24/98, you are correct!

    E55150's date is 6/19/06.

    F13516 was an instrument on 5/9/05.

    Nice pieces - nice collection!

    Thanks,
    r&s, good guess, it was completed on 9/24/04.

    cliff, there isn't a final tally yet on these because we are still building them. Ask me next year and I can get an approximate number.

    Your bass was completed on 5/30/06.

    serban, how's it goiing? We have been using pretty much just Southern Ash on basses for last few years, before that there would be some poplar mixed in on some solid colors, but not much. And, in case you're curious, your bass was completed on 3/14/04.
