    Oh, I totally get that, I really do. It's right where you feel it.

    That looks like an oiled neck though, which is actually good. That looks mostly like a dent, so it can probably be steamed out...

    EBMM puts a finish on their maple necks for a reason. I guess all the companies that finish their necks are just wasting their time then?

    Maple is not an oily wood, like a rosewood or ebony...

    Definitely make the request, though I haven't seen any models available with pickguards. I wonder whether that specific metallic blue would look better with a black or a white pickguard.

    Do you have any pictures of the scratch? Was wood removed when it happened? Is it an oil finished neck, or one with a satin poly finish?

    If you took the oil coating off of the neck, you need to put one back on. It protects the neck from sweat oils and other nasty gunk. Yes, a totally unfinished neck can feel awesome, until the wood...

    Seeing as you are in Germany, it would hardly be cost effective to send it back. I'm sure you can find someone excellent over there who specializes in repairing instruments, which often is quite a...

    I have one, and it is a great guitar. I will say that the fret height and the neck shape are probably the one thing that really sets the "feel" apart from other guitars. If it doesn't feel right in...

    Yeah holy crap that is fake. Looks like someone made those pickup routes with a chisel. The end of the neck is way too rounded. The bridge securing studs are wrong as well. It almost looks like...

    Well, I guess that is why it was really cheap? As others have said, take it to a REAL guitar tech / luthier to be examined.

    I mean, you only paid $80 for it, right?

    You can clean the neck with a mixture of water and murphy's oil soap. I would take it off for that. A soft toothbrush can help get out some of the more ground in grime.

    After that you can re-apply...

    Looks fine to me. There are some "mineral streaks", which happen in curly maple. It's also REALLY difficult to truly picture figured maple. I have some that looked kinda flat in pictures but POPPED...

    Is it just not working at all? Have you tried having it repaired?

    Did you inspect the exterior of the pot inside the control cavity? It's possible that the retaining spring thing has moved out of place.

    Well, are you referring just to Artists that have their own Signature models? Because they have had many people who use and endorse their instruments, but who do not have their own signature model.

    Per the Sterling by Musicman website, the Ray 35HH has "HH - 2 Alnico Humbuckers". I would go by what you are seeing on the official "Sterling by Musicman" website, as there is often confusion...

    Look at how many famous music groups went down over money. I've seen families and friendships ripped apart for years over money. This is nothing new.

    Did the person you sold it too agree to not...

    Well, they area the same pickups as in the Axis, so they are a bit hot, but sound sooo good. However I'm sure these sound phenomenal as well.

    If that is a serial number from an OLP or Sterling by Musicman bass, the serial number tool will not work.

    You have the bass, what do you want to know about it?

    This is going to be one of those "money talks" discussions. Ernie Ball does not offer a Wide 5 option, and I heard in the past that they offered to, if enough people wanted it and agreed to purchase...

    That doesn't appear to be an oiled neck and fretboard, so any of the advice in this thread is not really going to apply. That looks like a satin poly finished neck where you wore through the finish,...

    Looks like the paint is peeling off, which can happen if a guitar is not stored in a moisture and temperature controlled environment for a long time.

    You really need to contact Sterling by Music Man regarding this. The serial number search tool is for Ernie Ball Music Man products only. Sterling by Musicman is a different brand name.

    Eh.. imho that is TOO much gold. The contrast of the black, white, and gold looks great on the headstock, so why not the body?

    Question: I really don't see what's wrong with black knobs?...

    I really don't see what's wrong with black knobs? They look good and are functional. They match the black finish of the logo on the headstock, and the black hardware on the back. Black goes with...

    Sometimes on new instruments they can get kinda 'stuck' on the finish of the neck. You definitely want to loosen it first, and maybe put just a bit of graphite between the nylon washer and the neck....
