Stingray Electronics Query

Stingray Electronics Query

Hi all.

I have an Indonesian-made Stingray Classic ‘Ray34’ which sounds and plays great. However, I’d love to to have the Bass / Tone pots centre-detented. Taking the electronics apart, I’d also like to know if there are any upgrades to be made whilst I’m there.

• Are the standard pots good quality – I know this is an area where the far east can cut corners.
• Only the volume knob is stamped 250K and the Bass/Tone are blank – I’ve been told Stingray’s use 500K? How to know what I need?
• Is this electronics set up the same as the USA version? Any improvement from moving to an Aguilar or third party EQ / Pre Amp?

I wouldn’t mind a touch more mellow / single coil sound if that makes sense.

Thanks in advance!
