    i've recently come to own (once i pay it off) an 86 stingray. I knew i wanted a stingray but couldn't afford a new one and this one just popped up in my price field. meant to be. Anyway i was hoping you could shed some light on these basses with comparisons to other basses, good eq options and just general comments on them, tell me everything!

    I looooove me some old StingRays! For an EBMM Ray, I love that era in particular: wonderful glossed necks that typically came with great figuring, mute bridges, and -my favorite on a Ray- the 2 band eq.

    About all I can say is don't dime the eq knobs, or it's sizzle city.

    80's EBMM Basses are fantastic. High quality , affordable Stingrays.
