Musicman Stingray 'Forest Green' with pre-EB 1977 neck SOLD!
£900

Recommended Posts

This is a beautiful bass I had built around a 1977 one-piece maple neck. Former Sei Bass luthier Chris McIntyre who is now based in Scotland built the ash body as a replica of a friend's 1980 Stingray. I requested the front contour, but the rear of the body is still a slab design, like the originals.

Everything on the neck is original, but Chris added a new truss rod nut for ease of adjustment.

The finish is a custom colour, forest green. Not turquoise like it may seem in a couple of photos, and the condition is amazing, albeit for the light buckle/clothing rash on the rear.

John East MMSR 2-band active preamp.

Nordstrand MM4.2 dual-coil pickup, which faithfully reproduces the classic early Stingray tone.

Hipshot bridge - also often used on Nordy bass guitars.

1977 neck plate and battery cover on rear.

Pre-EB pickguard.

Its weight is 4kg, which is relatively light for a Stingray, and it balances well.

No trades thanks. I'll include a black padded MonoStrap in with the sale. Postage costs I'll keep as low as possible.

Hi, nice one, I like this color. Is the neck straight and suitable for a low setting? Seems a bit high on the pics but maybe it's just the pic, maybe the way you like it. Thanks.

Hi the neck is very straight and the bridge saddles are set to give a medium action for me. I do like to dig in without any notes 'choking' so I had it raised slightly higher than the way Chris McIntyre set it up, so I do know the neck is suitable for a low action. I hope that helps?

Can't comment on the Bass but Lawrie is a top fella and I'd have no qualms about dealing with him, if that helps..
