    Soon to be NBD

    So I was a Stingray guy before I was a Bongo guy. Had been getting the itch for another for a while now. After selling my 2012 Bongo PDN I decided it was time to add another Stingray to the collection. It is a much more diverse Stingray line today than say 5-6 years ago, but the Classics have always had my eye. I am also a sucker for matching headstocks. Not a good combo with the classic line but sometimes you get lucky. Arriving next week... Photos courtesy of Chicago Music Exchange. JOSH

    trussrod adjustment:
    Click here for an image!
    less relief / flatter = lower action
    more relief / bow = higher action
    do NOT use cheap tools to adjust with. they break and scrape up your bass!

    if you have a 100th namm sr4: the truss works the other way around on those!

    i have no affiliation with eb other than i love their basses

    Congrats Josh,

    I've always been a Ray guy, and I just got a 2014 PDN Bongo 5. It's very nice, and might be a keeper for sure.

    Bass arrived today and had it for about two hours before heading to band practice. Absolutely killed it at practice. This is my first 2eq Stingray and this is the way they should all come! Don't know why I waited for so long to get a Classic Ray.

    I love the different colour "MusicMan" on the headstock. A good headstock is key to the looks of a Bass, imo.
