For sale is my 1992 Musicman Stingray 5 fretless. I got this bass in a trade with Tony (Hellzero) a couple of years ago. Put it up for sale last year, but then ended up using it a bunch for sessions. It's a great bass, but not getting used enough so putting out there again!
This particular bass was built on 16th December 1992 and has an ash body finished in teal (or petrol blue), beautiful maple neck and unlined pau ferro fingerboard. I was informed by Tony that the previous (and original) owner hardly played the bass and there is very little wear on the fingerboard, especially considering it's nearly 28 years old. In perfect condition other than a chip in the finish on the lower horn - shown in photos, but I'm happy to send over more pics if necessary (chip is about 2mm square). Neck is in great condition and the setup is very comfortable indeed. Currently strung with DR Sunbeams 40-120.
All original hardware and electronics from early 90s (3 band EQ, 3 way selector switch and classic MM pickup). Only downside to this bass is that it's not one of the light MMs - weighs about 5.2kg. Standard Stingray specs other that than - 34" scale etc. and, of course, a superb low B.
I'm looking for £1250 for this. I will consider trades, but only partial ones really - I would like to free up some cash with this one and would prefer a sale.
Comes with original MM case. I'm based in Birmingham/Smethwick for collection and/or to check the bass out (welcome to come and try it out and have a cuppa). Happy to ship fully insured at the buyers expense. Thanks for looking.
