    Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray SLO Special

    Beautiful shape. No dings, dents, or scratches. Fretboard is immaculate. Includes a Hipshot Detuner and the original tuning key is included. A tortoise pick guard is included if you wish to change it out from the black one that is currently installed. The Hipshot Detuner was removed and the original tuning key was put back on. I don't use the detuner, but it will be included in the case. There is a dark wood marking from the wood that was used to make the neck. It's not a defect it's just part of the wood.

    What was it about this bass you didn't like? I have the exact same bass as this same color same everything but it's the regular stingray. I've been thinking about a slo special but not too sure.

    I'm glad you asked. At first the Stingray didn't sound right to me at the time I thought to put the bass up for sale. I then started to think about the strings I was using with it. The D'Addario nickel strings did not sound right with the Stingray. I just changed the strings on it last night to DR Low Riders and wow what a difference. I'm now enjoying it and it sounds perfect to my ears. Now I'm going to get it properly setup because I can tell the intonation is not right. I think I'm going to keep and just buy a Sterling when I can. I love the Sterling neck on the Stingray it's perfect for my hands and playability.

    I do miss the series tone I got from a Stingray 5 string and I am trying to sell the SLO to get the Sterling which has the neck profile I like and the parallel, single-coil, series options.

    Man I thought the slo special was a stingray with the sterling neck.

    The only difference is the nut width at 1 1/2" and the neck is a Sterling neck. Other than that it's still a Stingray.
