    Epoxy and my 40th Anniversary Ray

    I was showing off my 40th Anniversary Stingray on TB, and got questions why the circuit board is covered in/with epoxy.
    I just though it was cool of EB to history accurate do the epoxy, but I do not know if there are any other more technical reasons why this solution was chosen.

    Anyone?

    I have some issues with the volume pot that's why I opened the cavity to check if I could notice anything wrong.

    As I understand it, the epoxied preamp just represents the 76 Stingray which the 40th Anniversary Stingray is based on.

    All Stingrays for the first 2-3 yrs of production from 1976 had their preamps coated in epoxy, I believe to prevent competitors from copying them.
