    Coldmilk - the guy to whom I sent the Stingray prototypes, has flat out disappeared...
    Not sure if he has troubles or has "gone walkabout" ? I hope he's OK and that I can
    hear what happened to the two proto units he has ! ! !

    I am making ANOTHER Stingray 4 string proto which will be sent to Monkeyland
    STAY TUNED....Both the P Bass and the Stingray should be available by end of June.

    YAY - Heard from Coldmilk !
    He had some serious stuff going on, but finally had the time to get back to me
    and preliminary report on the Stingray version is promising, sending another
    Stingray proto out to Monkeyland and with the input from both these
    intrepid test pilots, should have a real CNC version available in June!

    AWESOME work by Coldmilk and Monkeyland!
    Monkeyland sent some seriously detailed info for which we are grateful :D
    Could not do it without you boys.....

    Berger912 - Not sure if the Jazz-2 model I already have out fits those, it DOES
    fit the Darryl Jones and the 44-60 ....
    You are talking about a 5 sting I believe?
    The ones I see don't have pick guards which means no screw holes to work with:rollno:
     
  7. Yea the pick guard isn't standard I guess I could make you a template

    Yours has a guard?
    If so - just post a cellphone pic to give me an idea of what you got.

    Monster Truck - Sorry for the "radio silence"
    I am on medical leave from work with a crunched up back, so puts a bit of a "crimp"
    into EVERYTHING I am trying to do~!

    Got a couple of actual CNC made PB-1 units ( the first P Bass model that was tested by some fellow TB ers
    in hand made form - THANKS again guys!) These are out now being played on

    As to Stingray - YES !!! it is coming...I got the protos for the 4 string ably tested by Coldmilk and Monkyland.
    AND got the actual CNC drawings made up and the machine shop has them...BUT
    They are backed up with much better paying work than mine right now we kind of have to "hang loose".
    I will ping them AGAIN tomorrow.

    I am cutting and hand shaping the 5 string prototype now and will send it to Troy Hughes (of YouTube fame)
    for a tryout.

    We now have a REDDIT forum and pics of the CNC PB-1 on the Zero-Mod website - still do not have a price
    established for the PB-1 ( shop has to tell me!)

    IN THE WIND is the Bongo version, a different P Bass version and several other ideas....

    Need to know what happened to the Lakland people - We developed and made that JAZZ-2 model
    that fits several Lakland as well as several Sadowsky Mike Lull and Sandberg Jazz models but no one seems
    interested.

    Just sent the prototype of the 5 string Stingray model to Troy Hughes (of You Tube fame ) waiting for his report.
    Big setback at the machine shop - The primary CNC has been down for almost two weeks with major repairs.
    (trouble getting a new spindle motor) So we are on hold for the first batch of PB-1 and Stingray-4 units.
    Hope to see this resolved THIS WEEK!

    I would be interested in the Stingray 4 string rest. Are they now ready?

    Yep, the Stingray 4 string is on Ebay now!
    Or you can get it direct from me, same thing either way, just whatever is easier for you.
    Check the guard illustration to be confident of a good fit. I don't know Stingray particulars
    as well as I do other basses (variations of models over years etc) But this did fit fine
    on a "Sub" and an Ernie Ball, up at Alto Music in Middletown NY. Should fit most.
    My website link here in the post has all the pics and info as well.

    Here's the Ebay link:

    This is a well crafted thumb rest that fits like a charm. The installation took less than one minute. Looks great and is totally pro with ZERO-MODification!

    Psyched! Got a black SR-1 on the way. I will post up some pics once received/mounted.
    If you own a EBMM Stingray, I highly recommend one of these. The thumb rest gives you many positions to play in resulting in many different tones as well as comfort. Brilliant!
