    Cracks in Finish on 2000 Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray5 H

    Hi All,

    I recently discovered three long yet thin cracks in the finish of my Stingray 5-string. I think this might have been caused by the heat changes in my office in the second story of the house - until we put in AC last year the upstairs would get extremely hot and muggy every summer.

    I've included some pictures, below. I was wondering what method you folks would recommend for fixing these? There are so many online, but I couldn't find one for my Stingray.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    Mike

    If that’s heat damage ouch !!!!!
    Rule of thumb. If you are too hot/cold so are your basses.
    Regarding fixing it, I doubt you will ever get a seamless repair apart from a full refinish.
    Touching it up, building it up with model paint then polishing it flat would be worth a try. Failing that it’s all mojo !

    I think you should leave them as they are too!
    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.
