Report i finally have mark's "classic bass" - a 1994 black music man stingray. in Musicians Posted 22 hours ago Just now, daveyjones said: it's the most beautiful instrument i've ever held. the action is like a dream. the neck, oh jesus the neck... this is the 4H three band EQ (four knob) model. if you search around the ernie ball forums you'll find the early to mid 90s music mans are particularly prized. by the 2000s they no longer used the same high quality pickup magnets, had reverted to a two band EQ (three knob), and had reduced the quality of the components in various way. for many MM fans, the early to mid 90s stingray is like what 59 is to a gibson les paul. once i dialed in the EQ it sounds exactly like cheshire cat and uranus. It looks like the neck is on the thinner side of things which I always preferred for bass. Congrats on your acquisition! How much did it set you back?
