    EBMM Predictions for 2019

    So we typically do one of these every year. Figured I would get it started.

    Already known...
    Cutlass/Caprice discontinued.

    Predictions...
    Sterling revamp aka... Stingray Special.

    Bongo update? Maybe with the lighter hardware, can’t see any electronics changes coming.

    New Passive bass??

    St. Vincent bass??

    Matching Headstock option for Classic Series Stingrays (I write that every year hoping BP will listen). Now that I think about it, matching headstock on any Stingray.

    What do you all think. JOSH

    CLASSIC STINGRAY White (MHS)
    CAPRICE Natural

    29mm must be a typo, Jack. 19mm is wide....too wide for me.

    I would love to see a Cutlass 5 as a BFR release. It would be a great way to send off an incredible instrument. :-)

    I'm guessing a switchable passive option for the "Classic Collection" Sting Rays.

    I really liked that SS SR that someone photoshopped in another thread. It's not going to happen, but I still like the looks of it.

    I'm hoping for an Bongo SS. I wouldn't be surprised if a new body style would replace the Cutlass/Caprice in their Modern Classic collection.

    I took his comment to be facetious. Only he knows for sure.

    My guess on Bongo update... no longer painted neck and headstock, and similar roasted neck to the Stingray specials.

    Would love the return of the Piezo option, but doubt it will happen.
