    What kind of music do you play? Are you looking for something similar to the ASS, or did you want to maybe get something with more of a single coil sound? There are lots of choices out there.

    How long have you had the bass, and are you the original owner? Has the truss rod wheel worked at adjusting the neck previously?

    As stated previously in the thread, those are original Musicman branded parts. They do not sell them to the general public, and that is part of preserving their brand name value. This prevents people...

    They said that they got it 4 months ago though, and this appeared 2 days ago. This isn't a light amount of cracking either. This really looks like a guitar that took a fall onto the headstock.

    One of the ways that some companies accomplished "better contact" was to make the plugs slightly bigger, or change the geometry of the tip. This can end up bending things inside the jack, making it...

    Yeah, definitely sounds like an input jack. Did you describe the behavior you described to the "luthier"?

    Did you try asking the people at Sam Ash and Guitar center? They are the ones that order items to keep in stock.

    When adjusting a bolt on neck, the most important thing is always to have proper string alignment. It's pretty much impossible to make a bolt on neck pocket that will fit perfectly all the time, due...

    I have a 2012 SR5H. I honestly never noticed a huge difference when using the selector switch either. It seemed like there was just a bit more meat in series mode, but that was about it. My 2007...

    I can't wait to see the solid color examples. I LOVES me some metallic blue.

    The pattern looks almost like abalone shell. Really quite a striking pickguard. Looks almost like the Chandler color "Fire Opal" or one of the candy crush looks. Maybe Tuxedo Candy Crush?

    It sounds like you are confusing things from an EBMM Sterling and a SBMM Subray 4. I don't know if any of the SBMM bass line has three coil pickups with the phantom coil.

    I've seen various different species marketed as "African Mahogany". It's somewhat of a misnomer, like "Chilean Sea Bass", which is really a "Patagonian Toothfish". The tonal spectrum is similar, so...

    If you watch a video of Steve playing, he will switch pickups in mid solo to get the best sound in different areas of the fretboard. He loves the neck pickup for mid and high range solo stuff, but...

    I seriously doubt the preamp on the Majesty is "coloring" your sound. The preamp is also ONE unit, which controls switching, piezo, everything. You can't just disconnect the boost. It's not that type...

    With being more "lightweight" being a BIG selling point on the Stingray Specials, that may have eaten a bit, or a lot, into the reason that the Sterling came into being. I think the Sterling, as it...

    You can probably get some oil soap and go nuts to see if you can get some of the gunk off. Might be a good idea to take the neck off, as it looks like it hasn't been off in a while, and that really...
