In your opinion what's the most beautiful headstock in the market and why it's the Stingray 5's?
I prefer the Stingray 4 over the 5 but my favorite is a Ric
Here's my new SR5 HH Special. Last one in this combo with chrome hardware at Bass Central. Its super light on the strap, and is the most comfortable bass ive ever played. The ergonomics are perfect. It took a few days to dial in the setup and to find the right strings. The original b string was garbage so after trying a couple others i ordered some DR low riders and Im getting the sound and feel i like. Id used them on my spector for years so it was like coming home haha.
Im still getting acquainted w the pup settings, but so far playing at home they all seem pretty useful.. except maybe the solo'd neck pup lol. Not so keen on it yet, but maybe it will work in the mix.. I also have an 06 SR4 H so its been interesting to A/B them. For anyone who wants to know, they do not sound the same. As others may have mentioned, the pups on the special are mellower, but in a sweet way with maybe a fuller and less harsh tone. The difference is subtle tho, it still sounds like a stingray. Anyway, im pretty stoked on this one.
Heres the 4H.. I call it Butters)
That looks great, I love the color combo!
Congrats! I really like my HH Stingray Specials. For the solo neck position, try playing with your right hand position. I find that I usually like to play over the bridge pickup, however, with the neck pu solo'd, I really like it when I pluck over the coil that is closest to the neck. It wasn't till I tried plucking there that I found that I really like that pu position. Of course, YMMV
Thank you! And thanks for the suggestion, Ill def give that a try.
huh... fooled me... I did everything short of look under a magnifying glass.
I'm considering getting luminlay installed. now that I know it's a separate fret board I'm a little nervous about it. Advice?
Sorry, I’ve no experience there. Perhaps others might have some insight to share.
Don’t worry, be happy. I thought mine was one piece also until I watched the video. Great craftsmanship. Jut play and enjoy.
The SR5 headstock has always looked a bit too big to me. The SR4 is nice and compact (as are the EBMM 4/2 guitar headstocks). I wonder if a 3/2 setup was ever considered for the 5?
It may have looked somewhat like this L-1505
Except without the bonus can/bottle opener.
I always get the best sound hitting the strings with a quick solid hit and pull away of my my middle finger right up close to the edge of the neck. I have tried the same right over the pickup and can't get the same sound or same tension. To each his own I guess.
imo if its not a matching headstock then it doesnt even rate
its hard to argue Rick>>>>everything
What about the matching headstock Rays?
Matching headstock is a matching headstock. I love pretty much any matching headstock
This isn't matching but I think it rates.
You are not in competition with my opinion. If you like it that’s what matters
Will these count?
That Big Al headstock
