In todays market, anything between £475 to £600. A Paul Turner fan might pay the upper amount or slightly more. I'd be very surprised if a PT fan would pay more than £700 for it.

Hope this helps :)

Top of the head £600! The best thing to do is stick it up at £800 and then every few days drop the price £25/£50. The bass will eventually hit the right button for someone and if all else fails I'll take it when it hits £500. Actually thinking about it... for something defaced by a Mackam I may have to halve that offer. :)

i wouldn't pay any more for it than if it didn't have the signature, and i don't think many people apart from really avid paul turner fans would, which i wouldn't imagine there are loads of. Not to mention the dents and stuff.

I've merged the two topics to reduce the potential for confusion and double posts.

if im honest, i think to the non PT obsessive, the signature loses value rather than gains, i think this kinda situation is what ebay is pretty good for

If you take a look around you'll find that the market for Stingrays is at an all time low. I just sold a special edition buttercream for £650 and a cursory search of the FS thread will show you that they aren't shifting for more than that.

It's an amazing situation when you consider that I bought my first one second hand for £650 in 1996 when it was c.2 years old, if you came to sell a similar good condition 2006 black on black with rosewood 3 band today i doubt you'd get more than £650.

If you want to maximise your return they still seem to be shifting for a fraction more on ebay, but it's a risk that you won't get a sale I guess.

I once won a Fender Strat signed by Ritchie Blackmore. First thing I did when I got it home was reach for the Mr Sheen. It seemed to sound better afterwards somehow.

A Stingray is a great bass, worth between 600/800 quid depending on its condition.

Paul Turner is a great bass player (I'm a fan), but his signature aint worth squat.

If the bass was signed by Jaco, we might be talking big bucks here, but we're not.

Good luck with the sale, a '77 'ray would be a good buy.

If anyone can get £800 for a modern, standard Stingray I'd be impressed.

By my reckoning you'd have to sell 2 of these and still need to go down the docks and do a few favours for sailors before you'd be able to aford a decent '77

I didn't get a bite on my 3band 2005 Ray4 even at £570 recently and it is as close to mint as makes no odds. Needless to say it stayed with me - we all have limits. There is a point when the inherent value exceeds that perceived by potential buyers ^_^

if anyone would like to sell me a Sterling for around £500 then I'll happily take it off your hands :)

You should be asking yourself why Paul Turner is selling his 77 Stingray...

I concur. In the current climate, £600 would be good!! Couldn't shift my Black 'ray a few months ago for what I wanted, but settled on £650 in the end, and I was happy with that.

Stingrays just aren't reaching thier real value on the market at the moment, but at the end of the day, anything is only worth what someone will pay for it.

last couple of weeks stingrays have actually been selling well on ebay, including one going for around £800, which iirc was completly standard apart from a matching headstock, which doesnt rise value much anyway

I wouldn't buy any signed instrument unless it was totally out of sight eg back of headstock, and I certainly wouldn't pay extra for it.

I agree with Rayman, I'd want to lose the signature ASAP, No offense to Turner!

I was wondering that. I've played it briefly and it was lovely, really nice Ray with loads of 'mojo'.
Fancy telling us how much he's asking? :)
