Older is better here. If Kebo has to explain, you wouldn't understand.

This abused '83 Stingray arrived a few days ago from the US. Fumigated, cleaned up, reassembled, new mute pads made and fitted, pickguard added, restrung with flats, and setup. Feels like a pair of worn-in boots, will be a great workhorse.

Hey Mark,

That could almost be a Nash relic Stingray... looks awesome. How does she sound with flats?

I'm seriously thinking of putting TI flats on my 30th Anni Stingray to see the difference in tone.

Cheers

Those flats are D'Addario Chromes, which are my fave string for Stingrays, but I have TI Flats on the 30th Anniversary because I think they are a better match with the tonal characteristics of the mahogany body. I also have TI Flats on the fretless Stingray.
