I like what you did there...
I love my special. Zero neck problems for the first 2 ish years... got it Plek’d back in June and it plays unbelievably well.
My two cents, I would rather just buy an older used Stingray than give up the sound of the special.
The cake is a lie.
The Low End Lobster Channel on YouTube has like 20 videos on Stingray electronics modifications if it is of any help.
I love my Special as well, I wouldn't even consider spending more of my hard earned cash on it if I didn't. I have a feeling that if EBMM dropped a BFR 2 Band Alnico Special folks would literally soil there drawers. Perhaps they have, I'm no expert...
Watched them, lots of great content
Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I was wondering if you went ahead with this mod, oldskoolskatedad? If so, are you happy with the results? I was thinking of doing exactly the same thing (stock pickup + John East preamp) - that's why I ask. Cheers!
I have not, mainly due to coming down with a mild case of "SR Special Fever" and purchasing a used black & maple 4HH Special as well which drained my discretionary bass funds for a bit. I still plan on giving an East preamp a go but the more I get to know the Specials the less I feel they are lacking in any way.
Agree'd. IMO they're among the absolute best production basses of all time. Get them plek'd for pure bliss.
