    Help: If that is a serial number from an OLP or...

    If that is a serial number from an OLP or Sterling by Musicman bass, the serial number tool will not work.

    You have the bass, what do you want to know about it?

    This is going to be one of those "money talks" discussions. Ernie Ball does not offer a Wide 5 option, and I heard in the past that they offered to, if enough people wanted it and agreed to purchase...

    That doesn't appear to be an oiled neck and fretboard, so any of the advice in this thread is not really going to apply. That looks like a satin poly finished neck where you wore through the finish,...

    Looks like the paint is peeling off, which can happen if a guitar is not stored in a moisture and temperature controlled environment for a long time.

    You really need to contact Sterling by Music Man regarding this. The serial number search tool is for Ernie Ball Music Man products only. Sterling by Musicman is a different brand name.

    Eh.. imho that is TOO much gold. The contrast of the black, white, and gold looks great on the headstock, so why not the body?

    I really don't see what's wrong with black knobs? They look good and are functional. They match the black finish of the logo on the headstock, and the black hardware on the back. Black goes with...

    Sometimes on new instruments they can get kinda 'stuck' on the finish of the neck. You definitely want to loosen it first, and maybe put just a bit of graphite between the nylon washer and the neck....

    Yeah, that's definitely pre-1984 then. Could just be years of adjustment and planing the fretboard made it too brittle to handle the stress of the truss rod.

    Hmmm, these just appeared recently? Do you keep the guitar in a moisture and temperature controlled environment? Also, do you do any "neck bends" with the guitar?

    No, there isn't enough room. You would need to remove the pickup.

    Wow, that must be an oldy. By 1991 the Stingray had moved to the "wheel" truss rod nut on the other end of the neck. Does the peghead say "Ernie Ball" over "Music Man"?

    It looks like the...

    Yeah. They do however have some Axis's, and a 25th anniversary. Looks like someone cashed in their EBMM collection, or put it on consignment. However, they look like they still have the original...

    If you don't "hear" a problem, it's ok to have the OD light on. It is just there to let you know that Overdrive is happening. The amp is designed to be able to have a nice overdrive sound, so...

    Do you hear the amp clipping, or is it lighting up the OD led? I'm assuming you read the Mesa Manual from cover to cover?

    The Stingray special is an 18V preamp bass. If you are cranking up the EQ...

    So, do you have a Sterling by Musicman AL40, or do you have an Ernie Ball Musicman Albert Lee HH? I'm a bit confused here.

    Also I'm pretty sure that the SBMM AL40 HH does not have the same pickups...

    It definitely would.

    I also wonder if EBMM has ever done "rail" or "bar" pickups. I have a bunch of basses from Carvin, and they used rail magnet "J" style pickups exclusively for years, along...

    Don't for get that neither the P-bass nor the J-bass had a single pole piece per string in their most "iconic" configurations. The P-bass originally had a single coil pickup with one pole piece per...

    Probably 1986, after the "rebirth", when the Silhouette guitar came out. The original Stingray and Saber guitars had 6 on a side. When they brought guitars back, they went for a design more similar...

    Why would changing the pickup selection on the guitar affect what you have set on your modeller? It takes whatever is coming out of the guitar and does the same thing to it, so you would have a very...

    I'd say look at the stingray, but you already have a Sabre, and I would wager the pickups are somewhat similar.

    I have a Luke III SSH, and it is very versatile. I haven't looked much at the...

    People always forget that both the Telecaster AND the Stratocaster originally DID have bridge covers. They took them off because no one cared.

    It's also possible that the body was professionally refinished. I think I can see some black under the blue in some areas.
