    The 2-band stingray preamp was the first production bass preamp designed, and I guess back then they didn't have pots of that type with a center detent, or they just didn't use them. For whatever...

    Just remember, they should be snug, but not RAAARRRRR TIGHTEN SCREW snug. It's just wood, and you can strip out the screw holes if you tighten them too much.

    Anyway, enjoy it! They are awesome...

    They are cut/boost controls, but there is no center detent/click on the 2-band EQ. From what I gather, there never has been. Just need to use your ears.

    Definitely looks like a neck shift. You can even see how the neck has shifted. As the cutaway is pretty big, there is very little on the high E side to prevent a slight shift. This is an easy fix,...

    Oh wow. Did you move up to larger size strings? It's rare to have a nut crack like that.

    That looks like a Ceramic magnet pickup. The pole pieces on my Ceramic 2007 Stingray 5HS are all the same height, while my 2012 5H has them staggered

    The back of the neck is definitely oiled, since you can see where the headstock finish ends. The fretboard is most likely oiled as well. It doesn't look like a finish wore off, it just looks a bit...

    I would put the pivot screw back where it was. On a guitar with a floyd rose, the only way to fine tune action is with the pivot screws, or by shimming the saddles. It was most likely set that way...

    First thing I would do: get some murphy's oil soap, water, and a very soft toothbrush. This is for cleaning. Then you also will need Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil and Gunstock Wax for the refinishing. ...

    I don't need another luke III. I don't need another Luke III. I don't need another Luke III.

    Now, if it was blue Dawn, I'd need another Luke III. That's how much I love blue dawn.

    For the most part, what EBMM offers is what sells the best. The bongo basses were made to appeal much more to more modern players, who usually want the HH pickup set. The same is true throughout most...

    I remember seeing those back in the day. I question whether they really are important at times other than when you are shipping a guitar. There's also little reason why a cloth wouldn't be just as...

    I'm sure someone will chime in shortly. The Steve Morse guitars come with a pretty specific setup, optimized for the very high output of the pickups, which were designed to sound better farther from...

    That is interesting. I was pretty sure that the oil and wax blend was done to the entire neck, not just the back of it, on maple fretboard guitars. Rosewood and Ebony of course do not get any type of...

    He said it was a RAD idea, not a bad one. I've never had one, but whatever works. Plenty of guitars and basses have used rotary switches. A lot harder to knock it out of place, and maybe easier to...

    Most important thing for oiled necks: wash your hands before you play. Definitely helps keep the grunge from building up, which is somewhat inevitable. Wonder wipes once a year also helps.

    Have you checked the knife edges? Do you know how much it was used before? Have you pulled the back plate to see if there is anything obstructing the movement of the bridge block?

    I'd definitely get in touch with customer service, along with the serial number and such so they can tell what year it was, and then look up the preamp design for that year.

    Is that the standard vintage EBMM tremolo? The bridge posts should be screwed all the way in, as far as I know. They are not really meant to be adjusted. Action adjustment should be made using the...

    I like the single H and HS rays. I find that the big pickup in the neck is just too much.

    There's a TON you can do with a single H, the EQ, and different playing positions.

    The preamps are PCB based, and they have the PCB for the two pickup versions, and the pickup for the single H version, which may be the same as the stingray/sterling PCB. They would need to have a...
