got my new pick guard (Abalone)
Help me out. I always wondered on older Stingrays what those circles are on the bridge closest to the pickup. They look like adjustment dials, but for what?
I think those are string mutes. I may be wrong though.
Yes, to adjust the height of the string mutes.
Good job on the guard. It's hard to find something abalone doesn't work with, I guess! I've tried, too.
Those are the height adjustment screws for the string mutes.
Is that a brand on the body?
its a canadian football league (CFL) sticker. i assume.
yes...in a way...
The little round things are the mute adjusters. They basically scew in & out, and the mute is the black rubber square. The mute is attatched to the thin metal "spring"-like steel that, when the adjuster is unscrewed pushes the mute toward the string. Screw it in and the adjuster pushes the mute down way from the string.
pics say a thousand words...
Actually, no...I fon't follow any sports, Canadian OR American.
CFL stands for "Choppers For Life", a term coined by West Coast Choppers, as well as a particular model of motorcycle they manufacture.
