    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...

    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

    Thanks for playing...

    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.

    He's simply saying that it's not a "Stingray". And I agree. If EB would make something like this, calling it Stingray doesn't really make sense. I guess you could argue that it's Stingray because of...

    Yup, Tru Oil is a varnish. I wanted a bit more protection on my neck, which is why I built up 8 coats (2 per day max + sanding every 3 or 4 coats), let it sit and dry for almost a week after the last...

    They feel great! I did add extra protection with 8 coats of Tru Oil and 2 coats of Gun Stock Wax, but it still has that great smooth feel. Tru Oil is very easy to work with, and the results are great.
  18. Thank you!

    Thank you!

    It was an EBMM Classic Stingray. Not very historically correct lol. But most of the movie wasn't anyway. There was a discussion about it on the "Pre Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray Bass Fans" on...

    It's very sparkly, I've seen a guy on TB return it for a different color because it was too sparkly for him. There's pics of it in that thread too.
