    I don't need another luke III. I don't need another Luke III. I don't need another Luke III.

    Now, if it was blue Dawn, I'd need another Luke III. That's how much I love blue dawn.

    For the most part, what EBMM offers is what sells the best. The bongo basses were made to appeal much more to more modern players, who usually want the HH pickup set. The same is true throughout most...

    I remember seeing those back in the day. I question whether they really are important at times other than when you are shipping a guitar. There's also little reason why a cloth wouldn't be just as...

    I'm sure someone will chime in shortly. The Steve Morse guitars come with a pretty specific setup, optimized for the very high output of the pickups, which were designed to sound better farther from...

    That is interesting. I was pretty sure that the oil and wax blend was done to the entire neck, not just the back of it, on maple fretboard guitars. Rosewood and Ebony of course do not get any type of...

    He said it was a RAD idea, not a bad one. I've never had one, but whatever works. Plenty of guitars and basses have used rotary switches. A lot harder to knock it out of place, and maybe easier to...

    Most important thing for oiled necks: wash your hands before you play. Definitely helps keep the grunge from building up, which is somewhat inevitable. Wonder wipes once a year also helps.

    Have you checked the knife edges? Do you know how much it was used before? Have you pulled the back plate to see if there is anything obstructing the movement of the bridge block?

    I'd definitely get in touch with customer service, along with the serial number and such so they can tell what year it was, and then look up the preamp design for that year.

    Is that the standard vintage EBMM tremolo? The bridge posts should be screwed all the way in, as far as I know. They are not really meant to be adjusted. Action adjustment should be made using the...

    I like the single H and HS rays. I find that the big pickup in the neck is just too much.

    There's a TON you can do with a single H, the EQ, and different playing positions.

    The preamps are PCB based, and they have the PCB for the two pickup versions, and the pickup for the single H version, which may be the same as the stingray/sterling PCB. They would need to have a...

    The 5 way selector is already wired with all 4 wires from the pickups connected. Positions 2 and 4 have the inner and outer coils, respectively. EBMM doesn't like hum.

    Might be easiest to replace...

    Placement could be part of it. Also the 4 band may be more optimized for a 5 and 6 string range.

    Is it a crack? Like is there space there? That's just odd for that to happen. But, it's wood, so sometimes things happen.

    Depends on the model. I know that some of the guitar models had satin or gloss necks, and the Old Smoothie does, but the new Stingray Specials definitely have the oil and wax blend:

    I don't like it, but if the price was right, I'd buy it. However I don't think...

    They are still finished with the "hand-rubbed gunstock oil and wax", same as before. Only a few select BFR runs with binding on the fretboard are satin finished.

    Unless the original electronics can be found, probably easier to just get an aftermarket setup. I am fairly certain that EBMM will only send out replacements if the original broken part is returned....

    Dang. I have no idea why someone would butcher a bass like that, unless they somehow nuked the electronics. I mean, I know it's their bass, and they can mod it how they want, but if they wanted a...

    Nice!!!! Just curious: what gauge strings are you using? I put .010s on my Luke III, but I'm debating on whether to go back to .009s. Pretty much all of my guitars have .010 strings on them.

    What kind of rig are you playing it through? The "stingray sound" is kind of unique. None of my non-stingray basses have it.

    Also, which pickups were you using? Having the selector to "bridge...

    I check relief by fingering the 1st and 13th frets. I usually want about an index card width at the 5th fret or less. Too much relief and you can have fretting out on the higher frets, as you'll need...
