    Have any fellow Canuckleheads one come across one online or at a local dealer? I've tried several Long & McQuade stores in Toronto but no dice so far...:(

    Lovingly submitted,

    Haven't seen one man, I've seen a few of the custom burgandy / dark purple (don't know what to call that colour) HH Ray's with maple fretboards and clear scratch plates, but no banana on the options you're after.

    I'll keep an eye out and PM'yer if I see any.

    Ok thanks a lot...they have the burgundy/clear guard one near where I'm at. Sounds..well...amazing, but the looks aren't really my bag of nails.

    Not really my man, not really...six onths is too long a wait even for something as good as a Stingray. ;)
     
  6. Dual Humbucker.

    Humbucker - Humbucker basically....

    HS Stingrays are Humbucker - Single coil configuration.

    Maybe get L&M to call around to other stores to see if they have one?

    They are an EBMM dealer and may have something you are looking for.

    You could try Mother's Music. The Winnipeg store has a decent selection of EBMM basses as does the L&M here. You could also try getting one from the US by going through Steve at Vintage Bass. Not sure if he can sell those across the border but you can at least ask. His service is incredible.

    I don't think shipping a new one from stateside is possible but I'll look into it. Somebody just grabbed the one I was demoing at the local L&M...I don't know what I want really, I like the rosewood fingerboard better methinks.:meh:

    Call the L&M In Burlington. When I went, they had a HH Maple, but Blueburst. MAN that thing was sexy.

    You could this company, http://www.molmarketing.net/ although let me know if you get a reply. I emailed on a couple of different occasions and never got a reply. Sometimes its hard to spend your money.

    I tried a single H StingRay at Long & McQuade's in Ottawa that had a beautiful burgandy rolls finish with a matching headstock.

    IIRC, L&M commissioned a limited run of Stringrays for their 50th anniversary. I believe there was a production of 50 Black Cherry burst HH Stingrays, clear pickguard. 25 maple boards. 25 rosewood boards. Sort of a collectors item, since they are only in Canada, only 50, and the only ones with clear pickguards.

    You can still find these in L&M stores here and there. It just so happens that I played a Black Cherry Burst HH Stingray in the new L&M Nanaimo, BC store about 3 weeks ago. It is probably still there.

    The above Nanaimo BCB Stingray HH also had a maple fretboard.
