    Musicman Stingray Bass

    Chris contacted me through my website. Heโ€™s owned this Musicman for a good while and has previously had it setup elsewhere before.

    He wasnโ€™t 100% satisfied with the action and thinks the string gauge had been changed from his previous preference.

    He supplied some 38-98 gauge strings and wanted a full setup and fret level.

    I checked over the frets, they were pretty good but there were some higher spots here and there and if we wanted a super low action they would need addressing.

    There was also very little relief in the neck but as we were changing string gauge I would look at that again after I had levelled the fretwire. I did that and polished them up to a mirror shine.

    The saddle for G was pretty much decked (and the others werenโ€™t far behind) and as a player the action was about right for me, but everyone is different (and I also play pretty hard). If there was to be any more adjustment I would have to shim the neck, so I did.

    Now I could get the extra adjustment I needed.

    The electronics got a good dowsing with contact cleaner and worked thoroughly.
    With the new strings on, I plugged in to tune up and wasnโ€™t getting an output. I put it through my desk amp and was getting an intermittent cutting in/out problem. I found it to be the output jack contact was not tightly engaging with the jack plug. I sorted this and now all is bang-on.

    So with the truss rod adjusted and relief set to 0.012โ€ and the action super-low, I then did the pickup height and intonation.

    Iโ€™ve got it to where I think Chris will like it, I think it plays really nicely. A really smart, American made instrument ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘ www.the-setup-shop.co.uk

    Project Frankenstrat is complete (for now)! The final touch was spray painting the pickup covers and knobs cream colored to match the maple neck (the knobs were trickier because of the writing). The last picture also shows a small wiring mod that gives me tone control for the bridge pickup as well ๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿ”ฅ #fender #stratocaster #strat #guitar #guitarmods
