    StingRay SS

    Any chance we might someday see a StingRay SS? I think it would be pretty cool to have a passive one. I'm not a fan of the Caprice or Cutlass body styles. I really prefer the StingRay body shape to all other 4-string designs.

    Current:
    2000 Stingray trans. gold w/match head, 3eq+piezo, unlined, Rotosound RS77LD
    Mesa Walkabout Scout 1x12 combo, Boss TU-2/AD-2/BC-1X/FZ-3/BB-1X/RV-6

    Former:
    1995 Stingray sunburst, 3eq, unlined
    2002 Stingray trans. gold w/match head, 3eq, unlined

    Like an HH or HS in Position 2.

    Sting Rays also sound fantastic with passive circuitry. Interesting idea.

    I'd want a 4-position pickup selector on a rotary knob: bridge, both parallel, neck, both series. Fender is doing this on a few models of guitars, like the Johnny Marr Signature Jaguar and Classic Player Tele. Here's a new picture:

    While interesting... it pretty much is lacking the defining characteristic that makes a Stingray a Stingray. It would be like a P-bass with no split center pickup. That bridge Humbucker through an active preamp IS the Stingray sound.
