    Caprice Intonation Issue: Bad String

    Good Day Folks,

    I got every string intonated correctly at the 12th fret except for the A string. It is still registering as flat and I've run out of adjustment range. It appears I need the screw...
  5. Brainstorming ideas about a future Caprice Bass

    I was daydreaming today and brainstorming about what I would love to see if they ever decided to bring the Caprice back. Here are some ideas I've been pondering :-)

    What I think would be cool is if they Incorporated a buffer preamp with a passive tone control. They can make them concentric knobs...to retain the look. :-)

    But if they do release them again I'd...

  12. Can one purchase the Stingray Special Tuners?

    I have a Cutlass Bass that I absolutely love...but couldn't help but think those new Stingray Special Tuners would really round out the package nicely. Does anyone know if EBMM will sell them to you...

    I would like to humbly request a full run of this bass. It would be a great replacement for the Cutlass/Caprice. And wow...the price is great too!
