MUSIC MAN STING RAY ~ "100th NAMM Limited Edition" ~
Let's take a look at the whole picture (∩￣∇￣) ∩
Adopts a Status graphite neck, which is a major feature of this model
The head is embedded with "100th namm" medals.
Since its appearance, it has a unique one -pickup layout,

The joint part has a strong six -point bolt joint.

Stingray is a rugged image with one pickup, but it is an almighty one that can show a variety of aspects with the performance method and three band equalizers, and can support the band of the band firmly even with one base. ♪
This time, let's feature the characteristic neck of this model this time (σ￣∀￣) σ !!!
What is synthetic resin material? ?
Speaking of the part that has a significant effect on the sound side, there is no drill if you say the body and pickups ...
In addition to wood such as maple and mahogany, which is famous as a material that makes up the neck, the neck of "synthetic resin material" such as carbon fiber neck and graphite neck that focus on this time !!
What do you think of when you hear synthetic resin material such as carbon? ? Airplanes, rockets, cars and motorcycles, bicycle parts, PC parts, golf equipment, fishing gear, clock parts, etc. are now used in various fields.
Generally, synthetic resin materials used on guitars and bass are mainly carbon fiber, and brands such as Steinberger, Zon, Modulus, Moses, Status, Parker ... are unique. It is made by the method.
The name of the carbon fiber and graphite seems to change depending on the material used and the composition ratio, so I do not know the details, so please check it out on the manufacturer site for details. ♡
Advantages / disadvantages of each material
Let's briefly compare with typical maple materials and mahogany materials♪
◎ Maple (hard maple)
・ Generally as a neck material. A clear sound with high strength and sound removal. It is also used as a fingerboard material.
・ It is relatively heavy, and beautiful things such as tiger heather, quilt, berth and eye, etc. are expensive.
・ It has been used for neck materials for a long time, and is characterized by a soft and warm mid -low range compared to maple.
・ The weakness of the wood is soft and easy to break.
・ Compared to wood, it has a ruggedness that is less likely to be affected by the climate, and is characterized by less dead points.
·expensive. Because it is hard, the sound is relatively tight. It is difficult to repair if it warps because it is hard to warp.
The pattern on the back of the neck of each manufacturer
There are a wide variety of carbon and graphite. Let's look at the back of the neck for each manufacturer♪
It's black !! ... it's painted (laughs)
The pattern is square!? It can be said that it is a feature of Modulas.♪
It looks exactly like "carbon" (∩￣∇￣) ∩
There is still more !! Musical instrument neck material !!
・ Ovan call
Other, Laminated structure that combines wood with each other♪
By combining various wood, the strength of the neck, the sound, etc. will be different.♪
When I thought, "What is a little different from normal on the base?" In making this special feature, various models came to mind ...
Listening to Watakushi's favorite band, I thought "It's a graphite !!" and made it a special feature m (__) m, but even if I looked it up with the concept of "synthetic resin neck", it was a project that was not easy.
In the first place, synthetic resin materials such as graphite change depending on the manufacturer, material ratio, etc., and when examined, the reasons are lost (; ￣Д￣).
Aside from the unchiku story, please try a musical instrument that uses graphite anyway at our shop.♪
Although it is in a short corner, it will be updated as needed if there is a little rare base or interesting bass.♪
... Then, until the next special feature (´ ▽ `)
