*Withdrawn *Musicman USA SUB 4 - £450

Recommended Posts


Here we have my beloved USA SUB.

This has been my main bass over the past 3 years and will be sad to see it go but have been using my Modulus Flea almost exclusively now.

It's one of the very first USA SUBs made dating back to May 2003. All original and un-fettered condition all-round aside from a few nicks (worst of all being a scratch on the upper bout that is hardly noticeable).

Body is Poplar and the neck has the nicest figured Rosewood I've ever seen on a production bass.

Weight is 9lbs.

I have recently had a new G-string tuner fitted (official Musicman part) as as with a lot of Musicman basses the original got slightly bent (I will supply this also as it is still functional).

Bass will also come with a black pickguard as well as the original metal-look scratchplate

Collection only or will meet up/deliver within a 70 mile radius to Witney in West Oxfordshire.

Will consider trade for Squier CV 60's Precision or Jazz plus cash my way.

Recently bought one of these myself. 

Very solid well built instruments. Made on the same line as the stingray classic. Using the same electrics, pu etc. 

Great way to get an authentic ray tone without as much outlay.

Best bang for buck on the planet, without question. I had a 5 string one a few years ago and it was downright amazing to play and the tone was epic. 

Good luck with the sale!

Too good a bass to let go. Sentimentality wins!

Wise choice. There's nothing for £450 that you could have bought that was better.

      Made in the USA in the San Luis Obispo factory in California, these first-generation SUBs are slab body Stingrays with the gnarly 2EQ, the same pickup, electronics and hardware as the top-of-the-range Rays but with a hard-wearing textured finish body and black painted neck. I had the back of the neck professionally stripped back to the maple and then finished in Tru-Oil - the same stuff Music Man use - for a super-fast natural feel. The rosewood board is really dark and just feels gorgeous and the neck profile is just perfect - it has that nice worn-in feel and is just a joy to play. I also added the matte black pickguard as the original thin diamond plate aluminium guards are naff. The red star sticker can easily be removed and will leave no mark - but it looked sick in my Rage Against the Machine tribute band. Also included is the Hipshot D-tuner worth £50 for slick tuning changes - no new holes were drilled to install this and I have the original tuner if you prefer. The bass looks great and feels as good as any Stingray I've played. I've had a few of these, a Stingray Classic and a Stingray 3EQ. It's pretty light too as the body is poplar rather than ash. It still has that trademark lively response and long sustain. These USA SUBs are legendary among Music Man aficionados - check out the buzz on the forums. Condition-wise the body is excellent with just a couple of nicks on the edge of the headstock. Schaller straplocks added. I can ship this in a Hiscox LiteFlite case or you can collect from St Agnes in Cornwall. I can also get it up to Bath with some notice as my parents come down to Cornwall every 6 weeks or so. Another option for cheaper shipping: I could remove the neck from the body and ship them together in a smaller box, then you can stick the neck back on. Contact me for a quote for the latter option.
