A while back I got this beautiful and great sounding Stingray.
I would like you wood experts to confirm or deny my impression that it is alder. I know it isn't ash, and it's relatively light for a vintage Stingray: it weighs in at 4.3 kg (9.48 lb I believe).
The mutes are brand new, they were missing and I got a replacement part from EB. The sunburst is kind of faded, but I believe it's original (the headstock and fingerboard are very yellowed and worn. I believe the dude that owned this played a lot of smoky clubs... he surely used a heavy cologne, this is a good smelling bass!)
So what do you think? Is it alder or am I wrong?
