Glad I haven’t tried one of these SR5 specials yet...I’d have to buy one!
Is the option of chrome hardware offered?
Two of the best basses that I’ve ever owned. See my avatar.
Here you go.

Yes on certain models. Ebony fingerboards get black hardware . So do certain finishes with rosewood fingerboards. Chrome hardware comes with maple fingerboards and certain finishes with rosewood fingerboards.
Looking forward to seeing pics of the black pickguard installed. That teal is a fabulous color.
Thanks! A lightweight EBMM is an oddity so a looksey may be in order. I'll assume it's in the bass section next to Bigfoot and the magic rainbow unicorn.
It's around 4 hours to Virginia Beach for me, but I'm on my way now!
Still using my anchor....lol... dang tightwad that I am....
Not really. I brought one back. They drilled the truss rod off center. Never saw that before.
What he was saying is that these new Stingrays are the finest production line basses ever made. Not to be confused with a run of the mill, dime a dozen instrument and they are priced accordingly. You can get McDonald’s or Ruth’s Chris but you shouldn’t compare them.
It’s actually the main point of the new series along with neo pickups and an 18 volt preamp.
I have the 4HH version since they first came out this summer. It’s simply the best instrument I’ve ever played or owned. It’s definitely worth every penny. No question about it.
Dude, I'm still amazed at how light that thing was!! Amazing!
Chrome is standard. Black comes with some configurations.
Yep. They're that good. My 2018 4HH Special has relegated my other 2 Stingrays to "back-ups," and I still love them dearly. IMO the 2018 Specials are the amp that "goes to 11." Definitely worth the wait, weight, sound, AND price point(s).
The StingRay Specials are in the 8-9lb. Region, some less some more. They’re not the 11lb monsters of the past
Might stop by after chores this morning...although I despise the VB GC. The entire bass section is the size of a handicapped bathroom stall (sans "Baby Changing Station").
BTW, the changing station is a total rip-off. If your stick your child on the shelf and slam it shut, you get the same kid back although somewhat bruised.
Sidenote: thanks for the comments on the new lighter-weight EBMM's as the weight has always been a deterrent.
Maybe on the 5. Not so on the 4
