well-recorded, non-slapping examples of EB Stingray tone?

    Feel like there are a lot of rock records where you can definitely pinpoint a J or P tone, but what about Stingrays? The only confirmed examples I can think of are funky pop/slap lines. If you had to show someone a perfect example of the Stingray tone on a record, what would it be?

    Johnny B Gaydon's 80's work on Alligator records, especially his work with Albert Collins.

    One Hot Minute from Red Hot Chili Peppers...plenty of fingerstyle playing. That was a great album, and a unique period in RHCP history, Flea wrote a larger share of that record.

    That's, like, you're opinion, man. ;) :D

    @tangentmusic +1 for Paul S. Denman (did not know his name) from Sade. Killer band, killer player, killer tone and definitely a Stingray where you wouldn't expect one.

    It is, it's literally my least favorite song on that entire album...from an album that I absolutely love and have had forever.

    I used to think the only reason why people liked it was because of the whole "**** you! I won't do what you tell me..." Part. Because it was "cool" to swear and bleep it out on the radio.

    It's just played out on me I guess.

    I haven't listened to anything they've done post 2000, but I always thought Karl Grable from The Urge had an easily identifiable Stingray sound on their 2 records they did in the mid to late 90's.

    All of that was an Alembic, except for the verses of Aeroplane.

    'Stomp' was a MM Sabre. You can hear the switch to both humbuckers in the solo section. Most of 'Light Up The Night' was the Sabre, whereas the previous album 'Blam!' was the Stingray - the title cut ''Blam' has some great fingerstyle work.
