I got a little confused by recent posts, about which position the switch on a SR5 should be in to give the classic StingRay sound. I emailed the excellent MusicMan customer service. - So if anybody is confused too, here is the answer: "Lars: Thanks for contacting Ernie Ball and sorry for the late response. The bridge position (parallel) is the standard StingRay sound. Best Regards, -- Dan McPherson Customer Service www.ernieball.com 800-543-2255"
