    No it should not be that hot. Mine is pretty much on par with my 3 bander, and I've had several 2 band and 3 band Stingrays. None of them distorted. In fact, if you crank everything on the 3 bander...

    Stingray Classic, or any 2 band Stingray, is not super hot. Not even close to it. Unless you crank the preamp all the way. Then it's has a pretty hot signal I guess. But a standard eq usage (knobs at...

    I preferred Aguilar AG4M to Nordstrand MM4.2, as the Aguilar had more of the bite that the original Stingrays have. Nordstrand MM4.2 was a bit too soft, which is often described as warm. Also,...

    I've tried several combos of aftermarket pups with original SR preamps, and I agree, the stock has that certain magic going on when paired together, especially in the lows and high mids/highs.

    As...

    The body shape (and therefore, size) is the standard Sterling, not a Stingray. It has a slab body though, like Sterling Classic. Unlike Sterling Classic and USA SUB (Stingray model), it does not have...

    If you're worried about the weight, the new Special Stingrays are much lighter weight. If you still want a Sterling, and are new to the whole EBMM thing, just try out the regular Sterling first, as...

    Your best bet is to grab a used Sterling Classic, which might take some time to find one, or grab a standard Sterling which has a 3 band preamp and a 3-way switch.
  8. Help: Meh, depends on how you define "less is more"....

    Meh, depends on how you define "less is more". I've put 8 coats of Tru Oil on 2 of my Stingrays, finished off with 2 coats of Gunstock Wax. Necks are now sealed with Tru Oil, feel great and have more...

    It's not a joint, it's a different type of finish on the headstock (satin poly) VS the oil&wax finish on the back of the neck.

    Sometimes I'm really baffled by the things people ask and don't...

    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...

    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...

    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?
