    The older necks have the frets set directly into the maple neck, the later ones have a separate maple fingerboard. Fender have done exactly the same, not sure of the reason for the change, I suppose...

    Question: Magnet adjustment

    I am delighted with my Stingray, but it displays the standard weakness of the G string being slightly quieter than the rest. In fact the A and D are also louder than the E. I note that the magnets...
