    Just came across this video yesterday, and thankfully did a search before reposting the link

    That pickup looks very similar to the new passive pickup used in the Cutlass & Caprice (screenshot from the video):

    This Bass totally looks like it could be built in 2018... incredible.

    90s Stingray Teal with birdseye maple neck.

    Anyone else notice that this "Stingray No.1" from the MM vault features a three-band EQ, rather than a two-band?

    I wonder about the story behind that... perhaps a retrofit sometime along the way??

    Yes, I noticed that too. I assume 'StingRay No. 1" is referring to the EBMM era, and indeed you can see from the neck it's not a pre-Ernie Ball.

    As far as I know, the 3-band didn't start until about 1987. This being probably a 1984 or thereabouts, it's a good question... Maybe someone from the company can shed light on this?

    String Ray No.1 is the fist after EB bought MM. It would have had a 2EQ. It was latter fitted with the 3EQ.
