EB Music Man Basses


Recommended Posts

I'm planning on building a hybrid Stingray/Thunderbird with my step-son. So we've been researching body woods of the Stingray, but I keep coming up with a lot of different answers - Ash, Alder, Mahogheny seem to be the most common opinions. Unfortunately, the EB site just says "Selected Hardwoods".

Any ideas on what they've used, especially the pre-84 models?

I revisited the link I posted and from the info there there doesn't seem to be much alder actually. Forget my reference to alder. There was *some* basswood used in the pre-EB years but not that much.

You can't go wrong with ash, they've been using it since the beginning and it's very obvious from pictures that most transparant or sunbursted stingrays are made of ash.
