    Switch pointing to the bridge = classic Stingray sound

    This is not the reason - I have a Neptune blue PDN Sabre (well quite possibly THE Sabre in that finish) - it has a stripey flamed maple neck with oil and wax finish. It's not unstable at all.

    Really nice bass and quite rare. The piezo is a bit of a secret weapon - my Bongo 5HH has one - you will want to keep that knob operational as it introduces, and let's you blend as much or as little...

    I think it was. My take on the Stingray Special, having used a 4HHS for a couple of months is the sound is pure Stingray through and through - just with more power and a different frequency centre on...

    I know the feeling - waiting on a 5 HH. At least I've got my 4 HH and it'll be well worth the wait - my view is it's a Stingray with a stack more power and an EQ with a different mid range -...
