    Stingray vs. ray35 neck

    Hi everyone,
    I am interested in the Ray 35 neck thickness vs. the Stingray 5. I own a Stingray 5 and find the neck a little "thick". Is the Ray 35 the same or thinner than my Stingray 5?

    Thanks!
    Chad

    Feels thicker to me on the ray 35 and it has the finish on it. One of the reasons I sold mine.

    I don't think that will accomplish anything.

    IIRC, altho there is a difference in necks
    between an SR4 and Sterling 4-string, the
    5-strings both share identical necks, and
    [again IIRC] identical bodies as well.

    Don't forget that the SR5 is the original
    Sterling Bass. There was no need to make
    a different neck nor body when changing
    it's name from Sting Ray to Sterling.
    S.U.B. SL4 - SR4p FL [x2] - SR4HH FL [Moses neck]
    SL4p FL [x2] - SL4HS FL - SL4HS FL [Moses neck]
    SR5HS alnico - SR5p FL ceramic [x2] - Bongo4Hp FL
