    I have a few questions about this bass, if you could answer them for me, that would be greatly appreciated :


    1. What is the official D.O.B. of Sting Ray Bass # 25792 (serial on bridge)?

    2. The control plate is dated, and signed by "MB", or possibly "JB" (see attached photo's). Who might that be, and are they still working at Ernie Ball?

    3. The maple neck and fret board are a really nice mixture of flame, and birds eye. What is it officially listed / described as?

    4. What is the neck radius for Stingrays of this early E.B. period?

    5. The frets are still in very good condition, all things considered. Should I want to replace any, like for like, in the next 30 years - what material, and size, was used here?

    6. The nut has a hairline fracture in the "D" slot - it's never caused a problem, but :

    a) Could this be due to using medium gauge Stainless Steel strings (lower tension, but narrower, and more abrasive), rather than standard gauge Nickle coated strings?

    b) Where can I get a replacement original (non-compensated) nut?

    7. How did this bass come to be in The U.K.?


    Many thanks for the great service you guys provide, and for any information you can give me.

    This bass has been my workhorse for most of it's 30 years, and it's never let me down - I think the only adjustment I've ever needed to make was to the truss rod, when I switched to medium gauge strings in about 1994, and some minor tweaks to lower the action.

    There's no reason to believe that wont continue for the next 30 years... although am I correct in understanding that owning a 1987 Stingray entitles me to a free 30th anniversary Stingray5?

    Cheers!
    1. What is the official D.O.B. of Sting Ray Bass # 25792 (serial on bridge)?

    July 3rd, 1987.

    2. The control plate is dated, and signed by "MB", or possibly "JB" (see attached photo's). Who might that be, and are they still working at Ernie Ball?

    I'm not sure who that is.

    3. The maple neck and fret board are a really nice mixture of flame, and birds eye. What is it officially listed / described as?

    Officially listed in the serial number database as "Maple".

    4. What is the neck radius for Stingrays of this early E.B. period?

    11" neck radius.

    5. The frets are still in very good condition, all things considered. Should I want to replace any, like for like, in the next 30 years - what material, and size, was used here?

    They are nickel, measuring to a width of .104" & a height of .047".

    6. The nut has a hairline fracture in the "D" slot - it's never caused a problem, but :

    a) Could this be due to using medium gauge Stainless Steel strings (lower tension, but narrower, and more abrasive), rather than standard gauge Nickle coated strings?

    It's possible as they are more abrasive, but it could just be use over time.

    b) Where can I get a replacement original (non-compensated) nut?

    E-mail musicman_customerservice@ernieball.com with your serial number and location to find out the best way to order.

    7. How did this bass come to be in The U.K.?

    It was originally shipped to Strings & Things, our distributor in the U.K.

    Wish we could, the StingRay 5 30th Anniversary is awesome!

    This Bongo 6 HH was completed on January 31st, 2011. The color is Black Sugar with the roasted Maple neck & Ebony fretboard. This was a limited edition run that was only offered for a one month ordering window in August of 2011. It was originally shipped to Bass Central.

    Hi I have come into possession of Axis Super Sport Semi with serial number G76758 which I have been advised was a competition prize but the online details of the competition say it has MM90 pickups whilst the competition photo and the actual guitar look very much like the standard Axis Dimarzios so I guess that was a typo on the competition. Can you confirm the build and date details for my records please.

    Thanks
