    This. A lot more tension on the bass neck than a guitar. Usually, the flamed neck version of EBMM basses have a gloss poly finish on them. My BFR Stingray had a roasted flamed maple neck, and a poly...

    Flamed maple is less stable/more sensitive to weather changes too, especially without any hard finish on it.

    Either a neck swap, or a neck refinish. I've seen a couple where people took the black paint off and put the Stingray logo on the headstock. Is there a visible "tan" line on your neck? That would...

    Yup that is your easiest option. One of the better aftermarket ones are John East, Nordstrand and Retrovibe Stinger.

    Sure it would work, why wouldn't it? That is, unless you grab one of the very early pickups (up to 77') that have the longer pole pieces, those won't fit in the cavity.

    I've turned one of my...

    It's still just a repackaged LM3 in a heavier case. Class D or not, Markbass have always been lightweight amps. It's not even a big (at least toroidal) transformer.

    Aren't they basically Markbass with MM aesthetics? Markbass is doing ok in Europe, but it's not as popular anymore. Now if those were like the old tube power section amps, that would be something....

    I would notice the difference in feel definitely. I'd take that gamble any day, blindfold me. Tone? Nah, less important.

    I would certainly notice a difference in feel. I don't like body-through because it makes the strings feel tauter and stiffer. Which tonally translated to less "crunchy" tone last time I tried, but...

    Fake. Very fake. You should have posted pics of the whole body too, that would prove its fakeness even more. Return it!

    Sure, that's one way to do it. If you wanna keep the original look though, you can easily do what I did to all of my Stingrays - shim the pickup cover.

    Take the cover off, put tape or cutout...

    Why do you think it should "feel" different? They get discolored, it's a known fact. They especially get discolored if the owner doesn't clean the neck, or give it extra protection. Doesn't mean the...

    That's a dirty neck. Believe it or not, they do get that "uniform" look after years of use. The wood just soaks up the hand oils, sweat and dirt and gets discolored like that. That's why I added 8...

    Wait, you don't know if your bass had a Nordy in it? :O

    With all due respect, if I were buying a Stingray, I'd want it stock.

    That pickup doesn't look wrong to me.

    I always slant it towards the G a bit, but it's only slightly slanted, looks almost straight visually. My G string is also lower than the E, so that affects the distance from the pole pieces as well....

    Something must be off, the pickup should simply not distort.

    G - 2.5 mm
    D - 3.5 mm
    A - 4.0 mm
