    When adjusting a bolt on neck, the most important thing is always to have proper string alignment. It's pretty much impossible to make a bolt on neck pocket that will fit perfectly all the time, due...

    I have a 2012 SR5H. I honestly never noticed a huge difference when using the selector switch either. It seemed like there was just a bit more meat in series mode, but that was about it. My 2007...

    I can't wait to see the solid color examples. I LOVES me some metallic blue.

    The pattern looks almost like abalone shell. Really quite a striking pickguard. Looks almost like the Chandler color "Fire Opal" or one of the candy crush looks. Maybe Tuxedo Candy Crush?

    It sounds like you are confusing things from an EBMM Sterling and a SBMM Subray 4. I don't know if any of the SBMM bass line has three coil pickups with the phantom coil.

    I've seen various different species marketed as "African Mahogany". It's somewhat of a misnomer, like "Chilean Sea Bass", which is really a "Patagonian Toothfish". The tonal spectrum is similar, so...

    If you watch a video of Steve playing, he will switch pickups in mid solo to get the best sound in different areas of the fretboard. He loves the neck pickup for mid and high range solo stuff, but...

    I haven't thought about splitting the pickups, and my experience with owning a bunch of guitars from Carvin, Ibanez, etc that offered splitting was that ultimately only pickups really designed to be...

    Definitely all parallel, and if you want there are tons of things you could do. I have thought about changing the setup on the controls, but it definitely grew on me. It's great that whatever you...

    Fulcrum tremolos have been blocked probably almost as long as they have been made for. Clapton had all of his tremolos blocked, and many people will block the trem almost automatically. Of course...

    I seriously doubt the preamp on the Majesty is "coloring" your sound. The preamp is also ONE unit, which controls switching, piezo, everything. You can't just disconnect the boost. It's not that type...

    With being more "lightweight" being a BIG selling point on the Stingray Specials, that may have eaten a bit, or a lot, into the reason that the Sterling came into being. I think the Sterling, as it...

    Nordstrand pickups are well made, an I know some like the un-staggered pole pieces. It's an honest mistake, and there are MANY aftermarket makers that don't even put any markings on the plastic. ...

    You can probably get some oil soap and go nuts to see if you can get some of the gunk off. Might be a good idea to take the neck off, as it looks like it hasn't been off in a while, and that really...

    Only you can really answer the first question. Just because John Petrucci now has pickups he likes more for the current music he is playing doesn't mean that you need them too. Many people out there...

    they were, but I believe that the CITES laws and regulations were recently changed, making it possible to get again for necks. The rosewood used is farmed in India, so it really shouldn't have been...

    Don't forget that there is also a Stingray GUITAR... which then and now really didn't share much with the bass. There also is the version from the 70s, with the low impedance pickups with 12 magnet...

    A 2003 Ernie Ball Music Man (EBMM) Stingray 5H would actually probably be closest to an EBMM Sterling 5H, in terms of sound and electronics.

    "Sterling by Musicman" is a brand name of import Music...

    I would guess someone re-oiled the neck, and used something other than Tru-Oil. A lot of gun stock waxes have some pigment in them, especially if they are designed to be used on new unstained wood.
