    Yes the did white covers for about 6 months, but I must say with owning many of those years, if your buying for maybe a resale in the future i'd say go for it but as apples for apples The New Classic series will smoke that 1977 Stingray hands down and sound the same, Necks will have almost the same feel etc.

    Plus it'll take you 15 minutes to set an Ernie Ball up and 3 hours for your 77.
    Anyway that's from me hope it helps email us back if you have more questions.
