This is the best playing Stingray that I've ever owned (and I've owned 8-10 and played dozens). The neck is just magic. She's was made around 99/2000. But being a bit bored with the standard Ray tone, I needed more. Months ago, I did the Aggie MM pup and OBP-3 preamp with active/passive switching and a master tone control (that works in active and passive). I wanted even more options so I just added a Ulyate fat pole P pup (setup the way I prefer it in reverse P mode). The reverse P setup gives the E and A a tighter, less woofy bottom and the D & G a bit more girth. Controls are: Volume / Master Tone stack Balance Mid Treble/Bass stack Active/Passive switch All cavities are copper shielded My good friend and TBer JKDahlman did all of the work. He's the BEST!
