Hi Bernd, My MM is a 97, one pickup. Factory lefty, black, RW fingerboard, I took off the goofy 'banjo' pickguard.
I hear what you're saying about the sound being related to the body/neck wood and mass. Even though my doubleneck isn't ash, it does have a huge mass to reinforce the vibration back into the string similar to the Stingray.
Here is my silly guess about the pecentage of importance -elements that contribute to the MM magic:
-neck mass and solid construction 18%
-body wood and mass- 7%
-large neck to body bolt area 8%
-precision construction 4%
-combination and mojo 4% -
So , according to my calculation, my bass portion of my doubleneck will have at least 85% of the goodness of a MM stingray.
Remember, it's a silly guess. Other silly speculation welcome!
By the way, I find the quality of Music Man basses and guitars to be incredible, dollar for dollar way above comparable Fenders and G&Ls
