Hey guys. I came ever so close to buying a Stingray today but couldn't decide which one to get. The one i'm leaning towards is a Burnt Apple with rosewood fretboard and a black pickgaurd. Another was sunburst with a rosewood neck and a black pearloid pickgaurd (don't care for that color on the sunburst, I think a white pearloid would look sweet though. Finally, a translucent teal with rosewood and black pickgaurd (wish it had a maple neck with white pearloid). Anyway, if my understanding is correct, don't the translucent finishes have alder or ash woods and the solid, burnt apple finish us poplar? If so, how does this affect the sound between them? They were all 3 at different stores and I tried them all through different amps. That burnt apple sure is purty though. I will probably own one at this time tomorrow night, so your prompt reply is appreciated.
