The best Stingray color... objectively

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Seth Shonefeld, Aug 6, 2020.

  1. What is it? I hear rave reviews of the sunburst colors from some, but then others say no. That's no Bueno for Stingray. Some folks are fond of the block colors in general. Some lean toward the natural, because those were the first. Some people I have seen even ridiculously try to refinish them in their own garage. Smirk. What is THE best Stingray color? Is there one? If you like Stingrays and could have one in any color, at all what would it be?

    I might make a move on that one as I’m seriously considering a new Special.

    That said, the correct answer is black. A black and maple StingRay is a work of art.

    [​IMG] Generally I like black, but this one is pretty sweet.

    Well, it’s a completely SUBJECTIVE question but, for me, that’s easy. It would be honeyburst - and I already have it! :hyper:

    Yes. Black with maple fretboard is the correct answer. :)

    That's a beautiful sunburst, but that particular tort doesn't do it many favors. BBQ sauce and butter.

    So many colors are wonderful on a StingRay.
    But inca silver is the best.

    I recall Fender had a transparent orange finish back in the day. I think I saw Bruce Thomas playing a P with this finish in some Elvis Costello videos. That's a great color they should bring back. Maybe Mod Shop?
  19. I love that color. Guitar center has one with a roast maple neck for like 2500.
