*Withdrawn *Musicman USA SUB 4 - £450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.
