    Red label on Starry Night Stingray case

    When I got my Starry Night bass, the case had a red label saying stingray rather than the black one that my other Musicman basses have. I just saw a Sterling Starry Night on ebay where the seller mentions the red label on the case.

    A 2017 Bongo I received after the Starry Night had the regular black label.

    Got me wondering. Is the red label on the case related to being a PDN? Or are all bass cases now coming with the red label, and the Bongo case missed the cutoff for the change? Or is there something else going on with the labels?

    Thanks

    I have three recent Music Mans, one of them a starry night and they all have a red tag on the case with the model name.

    Anyone know why the change? Actually kind of cool is different now. Can make it easier to identify which bass is in the case for me. At least until I get more red label cases!

    Most newer stock cases are going to have a red label.

    I noticed that my 30th Anniversary Stingray 5 had a red label case too. I wasn't sure if it was a new thing or something specific too my Anniversary bass. Good to know it a new change of the label to freshen things up.
