    hey i was on a website once that was similiar to this site but was an all stingray discussion board. Does anyone know the address of this site. I was so mad at myself for not bookmarking the site. If anyone could help out that'd be great.

    Hi hyperlitem,
    Don't know of any specific Stingray boards, but there is a MM forum over at the Dudepit on ezboard.com It is a fairly active board with several knowledgable Stingray players. Why don't you just get something going here? Armybass got a good discussion going on G&L recently. I'll start. I play a Stingray fretless 4 piezo and love it. I also play a Stingray fretless fiver which recently has taken over as my #1. The fretless Stingrays suit my needs perfectly (light rock, jazz, blues) and I run Lakland Joe Osborn flats. The 5 is white with white pearl guard and white pickup cover and matching headstock. My 4 is trans gold with black pearl guard and matching headstock. Pau ferro on both boards.

It has a maple neck with matching headstock, and pearl pickguard. Hey you said you have a white pickup cover??? How'd yo get that?? i ive seen a few of the newer 5's with them, and some of the really old 4's with them. I want a white pickup cover to match my pickguard.

    I've been looking all over the net for a stingray discussion board and haven't found one either.

    I have a Stingray 5 - sunburst with woodgrain showing through the finish, white scratchguard, and standard hardware. I've had it for about 6-7 years now and it still plays well.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on cleaning / caring for the bass? I have a couple of questions about this:

    1. The neck has gotten quite dark in colour with sweat stains. Any ideas on how to get the neck back to the silky smooth finish it had when new?

    2. The bass has exposed pickup poles which have begun to show signs of corrosion. Does this change the sound? How do I get rid of it?

    Cheers
