    Is it the low output problem compared to your other Stingrays, or is it the voicing problem? Specials are known as a more tame version of the older Stingrays, not as aggressive tonally. Might just...

    Shimming is only necessary when you want a lower action than the saddles can give you (i.e. your saddles are lowered all the way down, but your action is still too high). It changes the angle of the...

    No, you have Oil & Wax finish on your neck, and your headstock is finished with poly. The line is clearly seen on the back of the neck where the Oil finish starts and poly ends. EBMM use Birchwood...

    Alright, quick resurrection.

    I did this now on my current 2 Stingrays as well. Not so much for the string-to-string balance, but more for the comfortable playing over the pickup. I like to play...

    I have flats on my 2 bander - EB Group III flats. Fantastic flats, and they'll only sound better with age. Really nice, round, warm, thumpy tone, but still plenty of definition and highs. My favorite...

    If you prefer the tone of the Classic, but want the oil/wax finish that the Special (and previous standard) Rays have, a good option would be to grab an older 2 band standard Stingray. You get the...

  9. Question: All Stingrays have their pickup in the Stingray...

    All Stingrays have their pickup in the Stingray "sweet spot". You don't measure the distance from the pickup to the bridge mutes.. That way you could shove a piece of foam under your standard...

    Excellent work! It looks great!
    For a matte black (b/w/b 3-ply) check out Pickguard Planet (Chandler Music). They're the only ones who do matte version of b/w/b pickguards and it's where I've...

    Excellent! Nothing like a good maintenance. Tru Oil is very easy to work with and gives great results. Looking forward to seeing pics!

    You can build up multiple coats of Tru Oil on the neck if you want some extra protection. I did 8 coats on 2 of my Stingrays and it's close to a glossy shiny finish looks wise. Check youtube, there's...

    Here they are side by side. My black beauties. 2 band 2010 Stingray with EB Group III flats (oh my, simply wonderful!) and Stingray EX with Super Slinky roundwounds.

    I love the blacked out look,...

    Yeah, it has sharp edges - pretty much what I consider classic 90s Stingray features: non-rounded magnet edges, matte b/w/b pickguard, 3 band preamp with larger pots and a standard nut. That just...

    Fantastic info Gav! I wish I could decipher the DOB on my EX. Both the neck and the neck pocket have this writing: "040605-11". Could that make it a 2004 model?

    Wow, yeah, you're right, I remember that (well, reading about it online). Man those are rare birds, and very very interesting. I wonder how they built those.

    Hey guys, for anyone interested, I asked EBMM about parts that they sent to Kanda Shokai, and whether they did any finishing and/or wood work in Japan. I got the answer:

    "Hi

    Hey Gav, yeah I know. Too bad you can't contact them on FB.

    But from what I gather, all they really did was just put them together from US parts. I don't think they did any paint and finish work....

    Yeah, no info for the EX Japanese series. Also sent mail to EBMM, they don't have them in the database unfortunately. They're like the bastard sons of EBMM xD xD

    Stingray maple fretboard finish variations

    So I've just hunted down a Japanese 3 band Stingray that needs a bit of love and care. A lovely lightweight (9 lbs) black/maple 4 stringer. Sounds great, neck is straight, has a couple of dings,...

    You can clean it with a bit of polish, or one of those guitar body cleaners like Dunlop 65. Just spray a bit on a clean rag/paper cloth, clean the neck and the wipe it off. No need to do anything...

    I think the easiest solution for you would be to use a boost pedal (plenty of options to chose from) with your Stingray to reach the level of your Bongo, and then just turn it off when you play Bongo.

    Hmm, I might be interested in a long scale version of this particular passive Stingray, even though I'm gassing for a new Special. Can't wait to hear it either way.
