    I picked up the Stingray today. After a healthy scrubbing of the fretboard and a fresh set of strings, it's clean and ready to rip. Thing sounds awesome.

    Was hoping for a Bongo but this is acceptable.

    I sold an OLP version of that to Seanbabs. Bro wasn't happy when it didn't have any strings on it, despite the fact that it was disassembled in the box to save on shipping, and I passed along to him the same deal I got on it

    That's sick but I feel like that pickguard/knob combo is a little awkward.

    You need to either;

    A) Finish what the pickguard and knobs started and stealth out the bridge and tuners with black hardware. Maybe a black nut too.
    B) Get a different guard. Stainless is always cool. The mirrored Steve Harris look.
    C) At least switch the knobs to chrome.

    Leaving it like that is just weird. The pickguard and the knobs definitely give the impression that you are halfway to totally stealthing it out. If the knobs are metal, they need to match the hardware. That would look way more satisfying with silver controls. Or if for some reason you don't want matching metal knobs, some sort of plastic ones.

    Controls that match the hardware and replace the pickguard screws with silver ones and you are in business.

    BTW, if you do stick with the chrome hardware Dimarzio now does a cliplock where the hardware is metal. At least part of the hardware.

    Having the perfect Cliplock is a super important part of guitar modding.

    My only complaint about that is the bits that connect the smaller part to the main strap should be metal too. I understand that the male part of the buckle can't be metal, it probably doesn't flex enough to work like heavy duty nylon.

    Depends on how heavy the guitar is though. I have the 3" cliplock on my two main guitars. Especially the Explorer, because it's heavy as fuck. I wish they offered a few more options, but they are still the best strap money can buy by a fucking longshot.

    I love those basses. I should pick one up myself.
