FS: 2011 MusicMan StingRay5 H - £1250 ono
Includes: Original case with keys & New set of strings
Perfect Condition, I have had it from new, it's never been gigged, its been to about 2 practice sessions and has probably had about 20 hours play time in the whole time i have had it.
Lovely bass but i can't justify keeping it, given how much its been used and i don't have time to play anymore.
So with an imminent arrival of a new bass 😉, I’ve decided to sell my Pre EB ‘82 Stingray... four bolt neck, the neck is straight, trussrod has life left, frets are in pretty good shape. Original preamp with electrolytic capacitors, linear taper volume pot, factory installed protection resister etc and is all very musical and effective, and gives with the pickup that sound only pre-EBs got, as we all well know!
Easy to play with a nice low-medium action, a comfy C-shaped neck and an instrument on light side for a Stingray, weighing in at 9lbs.
Every part of the bass (except strings and 9V battery of course !) is original. There's no date stamp on the neck-heel, but it does happen, as you can see on Music Man inventory (musicmanbass.global).
The bass has a very beautiful dark veneer rosewood fingerboard, which was a custom order option at this time I believe.
Serial number B023268
Bass will be sold with a soft case.
Priced at £1760 Including shipping, (fees/duty etc if applicable to your location are not included).
I'll put for sale this bass for excess of instruments, therefore not really into trades, but you can try me.
This bass is a war machine, with almost 30 years and it's ready to much more. It has some dings, most of them in the body, normal for the use.
I can send some more detailed pics under different lights to see the dings, just ask.
Needs must, so here's my none more black Stingray 5 stealth for sale. Now £1050 including UK postage.
Sounds monstrous, looks awesome. Low action and plays really nicely. I had this strung with DR neons for a while which really popped on stage and proved popular with the punters.
Here it is in action at a 'recorded rehearsal' last October.
Great condition, a couple of small dings - headstock and back of the body which I've shown in the pics. Currently sporting a rather fetching Manchester bee sticker on the back. I can remove or leave depending on buyer's preference.
Weighs 4.65kg but balances very nicely.
String spacing is 18mm (I think). Looked that way when I measured it.
I can post at buyer's risk in a well used gig bag and bass box. It will be well packaged. Price includes standard UK shipping.
Socially distant trial & collection from Sale, South Manchester also available.
Here is my lovely Nightingale bass the pre runner to the GB rumour bass and as you can see there is plentry of DNA present.
Was totally refinished by the previous owner and Bernie Goodfellow worked on the bass also fitting an agular obp3 pre amp.
Also has side luminlay position markers that can be charged with blue light https://luminlay.com/featuresen.html
The action is low the paint job is perfect and the board and fret are as now, beautiful snake wood board too.
Also very light.
Only moving on as too many basses in the collection at the moment.
