Musicman Stingray 5, 2013, £1450 O.N.O.

Recommended Posts

This is my first five-string bass. I am a classic example of someone who took this on far too early in their bass-playing career. As a result, it has barely been played since its purchase from new in late 2013. Reluctantly I am looking to sell this beautiful piece of kit manufactured arguably by the best house in the USA. 
Currently sporting Rotosound Jazz flatwound strings, which were recently mounted and calibrated by a local guitar technician. It comes complete with a spare set of roundwound strings which were factory supplied and barely played. 
This is a versatile instrument and needs a loving home. Active humbucker pickups are great (battery easily replaced), the maple neck feels good and not too cumbersome even with smallish hands like mine, and the rosewood body is a dream to look at. Usual EQ and pickup selectors are all working great and produce rich and varied sound depending on your needs. 
It feels like a forced sale because I would ideally keep this bass guitar until I am truly good enough to play it, but in reality the best outcome is for someone to pick up a nearly-new bass at a discounted price and for me to use the proceeds on lessons with my 4-string. 
Collection from Bristol or posted via courier to the UK (cost included in the price). Please get in touch with any questions or make me an offer!

      I have MM fretted 5 Stringray (1993, 22 frets).  I have been recently moving to playing fretless, via a converted 4 string Ibanez SR. (works Ok).  However, I would like to move to a 5 string fretless for the low B option.  I can either buy a Status carbon fibre neck for the MM for about £400 all in or get a 2nd hand 5 string fretless Ibanez/cort for about the same money.  ( No I am not ripping out the frets in the MM neck).  I am thinking more about the new neck as I get to play the MM which is being neglected and I can't bear to sell her etc, and it means I don't have to sneak another bass into the house.
