    Ive been told my stingray is an 82 before, and sometimes an 83. How can you tell?

    you can email customer service at EB and they will tell you together with the original color of the bass so you know that the info is accurate.

    my serial number was located on the bridge plate just under the bridge saddles.

    if you take the neck apart you will find the date stamps in both, the neck and the body. Those are considered when you want to date a MM. The serial numbers, especially in the pre-EB era are not consistent with the year. We have discussed this to death in the MM forum at the Dude Pit.
