    I'm looking at an Ernie Ball Stingray that has a 4 bolt neck (plate says just 'music man'), a skunk stripe, and the truss adjuster at the headstock instead of at the body, and I've never seen that on a post EB Stingray. I was just wondering if it's an imitation or if EB had that design soon after acquiring Music Man. Thanks!
    PS: if anybody knows any info or sites on dating a Stingray based on serial #, that'd b e FANTASTIC!

    Does it acutally say Ernie Ball MusicMan StingRay on the headstock? I know that Japan make exact replicas of these guitars and the also silkscreen the exact logo on the headstock. I've never heard of a 4 bolt StingRay from San Louis Obispo Ernie Ball.

    You should email ErnieBall the question. They are very good at responding to all questions. Email their customer service.:cool:
