    Hello again after a long time away from here.

    Hey xparis - No, i've had at least 3 new sets of strings on the bass. The prob is there, irregardless of

    VERY strange.
    Even with the -14db switch engaged on my amp, the output volume of my
    Lakland Bob Glaub is WAY higher than the StingRay with the -14 db
    switch NOT engaged.

    Could a preamp or "EQ-pre" issue cause a prob with one string?
    The G does have low end from the 12 or so fret and up.

    Yes battery was the 1st thing I replaced when I got it home. Yes it was a new battery. I'll replace it again just to be sure that the battery is good.

  11. Ever Have a MM Bass With One String That Sounds TOTALLY Different Than The Others?

    I am fighting with a sonic issue with my "new" '92 MM Stingray 3EQ 4 string.

    Thanks Jakka1 and nhbg

    You can push down on the pole pieces as they sit, with the pickup in place. They all do down (and back up) together.
    Makes me think that even with taking the pup out, you...

    No, it plays pretty good. I like a bit o' fret buzz and I have that for sure. Just a bit though, up through the 7th fret.

    Rod Trussbroken - you were right. About the serial number and the finish. It is that "sunburst" finish.
    This particular "sunburst's" red is certainly a strange color red.
