Thanks Glen. I found an interesting site (Musicmanbass.global) that has a database of pre Ernie Ball bass serial numbers and interestingly there is a listing for a bass with a similar serial number (B004214) from 1977 that says it is a natural colour.. I wonder if this means the guitar would have been natural as well..

I own 4 Stingray II and 2 Stingray I guitars that I love. Unfortunately one of them has been gutted of all it’s active electronics. I wish there was a way to restore it. I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who appreciates these terrific guitars

Late 70's Music Man Stingray 2 Guitar IN LOVE but Help!

hi. so glad i found this thread. i am the happy new owner of what i believe to be a 1977 sting ray 2. it all happened quite magically one day as i was actually shopping for an amp. I was about to test out an old fender hot rod deluxe and i asked the sales guy to surprise me with a guitar to try the amp with. that's when he put this beauty in my hands, and i've been in love ever since. i'd love any further info you might have about this guitar. the number on the plate at base of neck on back is:
G002546

View attachment 29673 View attachment 29674 View attachment 29675 View attachment 29676

Specifically, i very much would like to know how to adjust the truss rod and how it relates to the small allen wrench hole at bottom of the aforementioned serial number plate.
thank you for any help!
Hi, So this is hella long shot based on the date of this post, but I am curious about this guitar. I used to own one exactly like this and even google searching doesn't really show any burst versions of it anywhere. I owned it from around 2002 -2006 or 2009. I cannot really remember when I sold it. Did the finish on this guitar show any slight spiderwebbing? And did you obtain it in either PA or CO? (I have lived both places and cannot remember where I sold it).

Anyway, I hope you are still rocking this guitar. I miss mine.

-Matt

Hi Matt.
I have a few files on the Pre-EB Sting Ray Guitars (both Natural and Sunburst). Do you have any other info?

The comprehensive pre-1979 list is currently being assembled :)

Post your full serials and I will post some info on them.

I have often thought about making some alternate preamps for these guitars. That unit is primarily responsible for the overall tone shaping of these guitars.
Hi Brock,
might be a long shot as this is an old forum but what could you tell me about my Guitar?
G004402
it's unlike any Stingray ii that i've ever seen
