    I heard a while back that MM was going to release HH stingrays with the same type of wiring as the original H stingray.

    :confused::confused::confused::hyper:

    The HH Stingrays have always had the same wiring/pickups as the H Stingrays. Alnico pickups wired parallel.

    are you 100% sure?

    I've just read things around talk bass that the tone form the bridge H on the HH is not the same as the tone on the bridge H on the H.

    100% sure.

    The Stingray5 is a different story.

    No, the HH/HS SR5 sounded different than the SR4 until this year. This year (starting around April) the HH/HS SR5s started shipping from the factory with Alnico pickups wired parallel, just like the SR4. Previously, the HH/HS SR5s had ceramic pickups wired in series.

    got it...
    so to clear things up...

    all Stingrays (SR5 H, SR5HH, SRH, SRHH, SRHS, etc...) now sound the same on the bridge humbucker?

    Yes, in theory. There are always going to be variables with wooden instruments, but the electronics are the same.
