    Haha - it's totally ridiculous.

    I don't know if you've flown lately, but every flight I've been on in the recent past has been packed to the gills with people who don't want to pay the bag...
  2. Help: Which SKB TSA-Compliant case for Stingray & Stingray 5?

    Hi Guys,

    I'm wondering if anyone out there can tell me from experience which model SKB TSA-compliant case would best fit a Stingray 4 and Stingray 5 bass without the bass sliding around inside the...

    Thanks, Joel. That's interesting that you have records on where instruments...

    Wondering about exact dates for my two MMs:

    Stingray 5, natural, rosewood 53017

    I think it's late 1992, based on musicmanbass.org, but I'd like to get the exact date.

    Stingray 4, sunburst,...

    I think the strings had something to do with it, because the buzzing issue wasn't as bad with the Nickel Slinkys as with the Sunbeams. I actually just bought and put on a set of Steel Slinkys 45-105...

    Wow! Definitely wouldn't be one to take out for gigs, that's for sure. When I hit Powerball and open my Bass Museum, maybe I'll buy it. For now, I'll have to stick with my Classic.

    I'll check it out - thanks.

    Now in 'experimentation mode' with the bass; put the Slinky 45-105s on, made some adjustments, buzz still there a little bit. Buzz lessens the more relief I put into...

    By 'low tension' do you mean they aren't putting as much tension on the neck?

    They're also round cores, whereas Slinkys (and most other brands of bass strings, for that matter) are hex cores.

    I like Slinkys and used them in the past, but I find I wear them out very quickly. If I had an endorsement deal, then this wouldn't be a problem. Maybe someday I will... But at this point, I can't...

    Well, changing to the Slinky 45-105 seems to be a big improvement. I still have some tweaking to do - that awful buzz is there very slightly, but not nearly as bad as with the DR Sunbeams. Very...

    Alright - I'll throw a set of Slinky 45-105 on and see what happens. Then I'll post results for all you curious souls out there....

    I see. I normally shoot for very little relief on my necks - just enough to have nice, low playable action without any fret buzz. I do have a slight bit more relief on the Classic neck; I can add a...

    I use DR Sunbeams 45-105. Never had a problem. Bass doesn't buzz in any other place, single notes, octaves, or chords. Only on the 8th fret E string while playing the octave on 10th fret D string....

    Update: I tuned the bass down a 1/2 step, and the buzz is still there, which now leads me to believe it's a neck or fret issue.

    I'll have to experiment with these suggestions when I get home and then post an update.

    It's not like I'm fingering many octave Cs on the 8th-10th fret all that much when I play, but I've never...

    Hey guys,

    I have a 2011 Stingray Classic - Natural, flame maple neck. Beautiful bass!

    I string it with DR Sunbeams 45-105.

    I'm having an unusual fret buzz issue:

    I've adjusted the neck...

    Question: Steel Strings Forever!!

    Stainless steel all the way! I think nickels are horrible in comparison!! And if the steels do wear the frets (they don't/haven't yet), I'll pony up the $$ for a fret job! Just gimme the tone,...
