    Question Stingray 2007 LE Blue Dawn Headstock

    Hey ho,

    my name is Bastian, I am from germany, and new to the board. Today I bought an 2007 Stingray LE colored in blue dawn finish. I am wondering about the different color of the headstock. It also has a gold colored Logo. Does anybody have detailed informations about the variation of the color. My thoughts are, that the neck is from another bass, but what kind of color would this be?

    Hi and welcome.
    Put your serial number in here Serial Number Database | Ernie Ball Music Man
    That will give you more information on your bass.
    Matching headstock and coloured writing is correct for that era of L.E models

    That's the correct neck for that bass. You can see the 2007 inlay in the fretboard. It looks like someone for some reason sprayed amber/yellow lacquer over the headstock, which resulted in the white logo turning yellow, and the blue dawn turning kind of green.

    It’s quite a new system so some information is not always there. You could try sending customers service an email to get more information.
    Your bass looks genuine to me but I have no explanation regarding the colour change on the headstock apart from maybe sun damage or it’s been tampered with some how by a previous owner? I’m just guessing.
    Nice looking bass by the way. Enjoy it !

    Thx!

    It plays and sounds very well, so i will enjoy for sure.

    Maybe someone has a 2007 catalogue (pdf?) where the available color options are visible? The gold logo seems to match with gold hardware, but i didnˋt find much info about the 2007 options.

    I’m not sure of the full range but 2006 was black (Can’t rem the exact colour.
    2005 was buttercream with burgundy writing (definitely sure about that one)
    And 2007, blue dawn as you know.
    2008. Brown with gold hardware
    as far as any other years either side of 2005-8 ?
    Hopefully someone else will have some more info for you regarding before and after models
