    Hmm, I would think with the 18V power supply, it should be able to get louder than the other Stingrays you have.

    Though, voicing does count a lot. My SR5 Ceramic "sounds" louder than my Alnico SR5.

    When does the knife edge come out of the groove? Just regular whammy use, or are you doing full divebombs?

    That's weird, and looks like maybe a drop of thick superglue landed there. Are you the original owner?

    You can set the vintage trem on the Axis Super Sport to float a bit. Just might need to shim the neck.

    If it's just the clear... you could probably just pull the neck, and wave a heat gun over it a bit, which will get it to flatten. Then run water-thin super glue under it.

    Is it just the clear coat that lifted, or the color coat as well? Is it possible that the veneer itself pushed up?

    Willcutt had a few white ones listed for a while. Looks like the last one sold. They aren't super popular, except for Eagles and Led Zeppelin fans. Or maybe Cheap Trick fans, but I think his...

    Looking at that neck again, you can see the finish line between the headstock and the rest of the neck. That's not a finished neck: it's oiled. There is no "varnish" on the neck, just tru-oil and...

    Broke 3 of 4 tuners? Did you try putting them on a Hondo guitar or something?

    I find this post and thread to be HIGHLY suspect.

    As you play the guitar, as with a satin finish, you gradually "buff out" the satin finish and it almost becomes gloss.

    I should mention, the "scotch brite" method is one I heard first over at the Carvin forum, and then also Greg at BCR music does the same thing. It's far less work, and most importantly doesn't...

    What are you trying to change about the sound of the Stingray? I think they are custom wound for that specific guitar, with the mahogany body.

    I'm pretty sure it happened last year, or maybe the year before. It's my understanding they haven't made them for a while now.

    So you got a BFR stingray, and are gonna sand the neck? Just use some scotch brite and make it more 'satin' feeling.

    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...

    Yep! The wonder wipes are good for fretboards, and the back of the neck, as long as it's not a finished neck. The rosewood should only be finished on the headstock so it's good to go to town on it...
