Stingray Fingerboards?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by funkysurfer, Jun 22, 2001.


  1. Do all of you Stingray players find that there is a really big difference in sound between a maple and a rosewood fingerboard on these basses? And what a about the buzz, do you find that your Rays buzz?
    All comments are welcome.
    Thanks,

    Theres very few maple anything that I liked. Musicman basses do buzz a bit my 5 has a very low action and I dont practice without an amp like I used to. The secret is to get it buzzing uniformly.

    I bought a newer stingray ('96) and it has had almost no buzz. Unless I hook up to a crappy amp w/ the treble on 9 or 10, there is usually just a small humming. That's one of my favorite things about it!
