    Question: Any EBMM USA Sterling love?

    Haven't seen much news on the state of the EBMM Sterling line, any idea when we are going to see new colors for the instrument? I've thrown together a *rough* MS Paint mockup of what I'd love to see in a hypothetical Sterling Special.. - 24 frets, neck-thru design (to help with access to those...

    Stingray 5H Special and Mesa D800plus settings that don’t clip

    Hello: I recently got a Stingray 5H Special and it’s clipping my Mesa D800plus amp. When I switch the “active” switch it of course lowers the volume, and then I bring back up and then clips again. I’m using 2 subway 12 cabs and competing against drums, keys and guitar. We’re a Tears For Fears...

    Question: Music Man Sterling 4H in Pearl Purple / Background information of this Special Run?

    Silo Special conundrum

    I have a 2006 Limited Edition Silhouette Special that I'm struggling with. I was almost set on selling it, but it plays so well, and feels so comfy that I keep second guessing myself.

    Question: Stingray Special 4H coil split possible?

    Hi Can the Stingray Special 4H have a coil split? The HH version uses it - so I guess its possible? There seems to be 3 wires from pickup - are those ground, front coil and rear coil? If not possible - will a MM Classic pickup fit the hole?

    2018-2021 Stingray Special, High-Pass filter

    I am aware that all previous 3eq regular Musicman Stingrays from 1987-2018 did have high-pass filters. Do the revised 2018-2021 Stingray Special Musicman basses 3 band pre-amps still use a high-pass filter? (''A high-pass filter is a simple, but effective EQ curve that scoops out unwanted low...

    Lightweight trem block option '14 Silo Special

    Hi all, Looking to see if there are any light(er)-weight trem blocks available for a '14 Silhouette Special. Nothing tonally wrong with the guitar (sounds great and well balanced), but is about 7.8lbs. It plays better than my '03 hardtail, though the weight becomes an issue after a while. I...

    Stingray special setup

    Hi, Just got my stingray special ( ohh man my neck likes the weight and my ears the sound 😀), and I noticed the E string is a tad louder, so maybe a pickup height adjustment is in order. 1) anybody else noticed the E being hot? 2) the specs published for the older stingrays are they still valid...
