    Inset cavity covers are nice, but it can be hard to control the paint thickness, which makes fitting hard. Also, if you aren't careful removing them, you can sometimes scratch the paint. With the...

    I've only seen it on custom or personal builds. They are glued into small holes in the body, and magnetic stainless steel can be inlaid into the pickguard or tremolo cover.

    Listed weight: 15 lbs. Big ol' slab of wood!

    Just checked one of those online inflation calculators: $595 in 1976 → $2,682.95 in 2019. That's a bit above a Stingray 4 Classic current street price....

    I guess this might explain why the LIII has the volume compensation in some positions. They may not have been able to do that with the EMG electronics.

    You don't need to remove the bridge plate. Just push the string through the holes in the back of the guitar, which are over the holes in the tremolo block. The string will come out the hole in the...

    How clean is the power in your area? I would think the electronics in the Majesty may be more sensitive to power fluctuations and grounding issues than most normal guitars. Have you reset the...

    Just remember that the sound is more than just the bass. It's also the strings they use, their playing technique, how they have the EQ set, and the recording setup they are using.

    That definitely is an interesting video. I see where someone is holding up an ash body blank, with some mahogany inserted, and he mentions it could be for a bass. Which basses actually use that kind...

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. That's usually how I look at guitar pickups and electronics. If I am getting what I want from the guitar, I'm not going to mess with that. Personally I think that the...

    I've seen lots of great demos of both the Sterling and Sterling classic, but I can't really find any good "head to head" comparisons. Basically, same setup, different bass.

    I don't really consider...

    Yes, they were made, but not anymore. Aside from the 2 band EQ, they are little different from a current issue Sterling. Probably explains part of why they are no longer available.

    If you want...

    Quite a number of brands do not have any specific timeline or "method" for their serial numbers. Especially import guitars, the serial numbers may or may not have any relation to the guitar and when...

    Are you referring to the Stingray Classic, or to the Sterling bass? There is no "Sterling Classic" model.

    The LIII preamp doesn't really change the sound. It mainly compensates for the volume loss in some pickup selector positions, and gives you the boost.

    From the pictures I can see, the body really does look like a standard sterling shape, but they may have increased the forearm contour a little, or just tweaked it. Maybe the neck profile is...

    That means that the body contours were changed per his specs for maximum comfort while playing in the style that he does.

    You would need to rewire the entire guitar pretty much. The electronics handle the switching, the mixing, the piezo, everything. I don't think the switches used on the majesty would work with a...

    So, you've already tried a new battery and a system reset? From another thread:

    "If you are using alkaline let's try a reset. Plug a cable into the guitar. Remove the batteries. Leave the cable...

    If it's decked, and you let it go, it's gonna make a small noise. You can set it up to float slightly though, however then you won't be able to do bends as easily.

    depends on how much oil they used, how much they sweated, etc. There's a lot involved. Also it could be from sanding down the neck during cleaning. You can see a ghost of the original finish line.

    With that huge volume knob, I was kinda expecting all kinds of volume swells and such. It's a nice looking bass though, definitely. Just, I need my active EQ. Sorry.

    It may be with how the luke III tells that something is plugged in. Someone had a good explanation of why the majesty has problems with some wireless units, but I forgot exactly what it entailed.
