    Colour and Switch Positions SR4HH

    Attachment 35253Attachment 35254

    Couple of questions. First up, what is the correct name of this finish?

    And second, does anyone have a diagram of the switch positions and functions.

    NBD#2 quite possibly very soon

    Thanks in advance
    Dan

    If you send and e-mail with serial number to musicman_customerservice@ernieball.com they should be able to tell you the name of the finish.

    Attached is the diagram. Doesn't show up on the page but should open if you click it

    Thanks for that. The diagram was exactly what I was looking for.
    The serial number data base had changed, fully automated now, it’s not showing colours as part of the specifications for some reason but it’s early days for the new system. Very handy though to get an instant response, just put the number in and there it is !

    Not too sure, my Bongo is Sapphire Black and the Stingray looks a little darker and more metallic, but that is possibly the photograph. I will have to wait and see.

    Just going over diagram, am I correct in saying that what ever the position the switch is in the pickups are always running in Parallel?

    Ok so just been to visit it and check it over (best you can with out an amp!!)
    It’s exactly as described. It’s been “stored” and not played for quite a while. It’s pretty stagnant to be honest. Battery removed. The strings were new about 5+yes ago (my guess) the whole things got that stagnant musty smell to it, chrome is all spotted and noticed metal filings stuck to the pole piece (trying not to get too worried about that for now)
    Anyways. It’s back in its case. (Another week won’t hurt). Just ordered strings, super locks and a new battery (and some new PG screws. Don’t like the mould green look !!!

    Full before, after & story and photos to to follow !

    Having seen it today I can confirm it’s definitely Sapphire Black as it’s the same colour as my Bongo
