    My wife had a trip to London and I begged and pleaded she would get me a Classic Stingray.
    The poor sweetheart did... but she got duped! What she brought me back is a copy... it doesn't say Ernie Ball on the headstock :(
    I just couldn't tell her and the bass sounds actually really good, so I thought I could experiment with some relicing instead :)
    Turned out pretty convincing I think! I also put in a D-tuner.

    lol... Pretty convincing! You even aged the string mutes to white from black. Is that a thing?

    Yeah, they were all "crumbled", figure that on a new bass... took some good ol' felt and fixed it!
     
  5. I see two different basses at the same carpet.

    Or how do you changed the grain lines?
     
  6. Okay, doesn't say ernie ball, got it, nice joke, man.

    Damn, got busted right away :D You guys are good!!!
    Yeah, two separate SRs, May and December 1977: December has had a cozy life, mostly living under a bed, May has been to war and back... several times over :D
    Of course I changed the d-tuner to the correct one and shortly I will fix the mutes too.
