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!

      Here I have a beautiful Musicman Stingray in translucent Teal Blue.
      The neck and board are maple with some light birds eye maple figuring that give it some extra cool points especially up close.
      Made in USA, California, this is a perfect representation of what a Musicman Stingray is and should be! 
      Official Musicman hardcase and also a lovely Levys gun bag style bass case made in Canada back when they used to make them for Musicman.
      The weight is 4.1kg
      I'm open to trades, looking for something traditional and ideally 5 string (fender usa jazz, precision, lakland) but I'm open to offers of anything so try me.

      Here is the link to the StingRay 5 page : https://www.music-man.co.uk/instruments/basses/stingray-5
      The bass has been fully set up professionally by Christophe LEDUC. It has a new battery and is fitted with a brand new set of D'Addario EXL170-5 nickel round wound strings (45 - 65 - 80 - 100 - 130), which fit the bass to perfection.
        What you see is what you get !
      Look at the pictures taken under different angles to see the real condition : almost in new condition with the very few scratches, the most "important" ones being on the headstock (bloody low ceilings).
      Don't hesitate to ask for more.

      No trades thanks.
      Mensinger Cazpar 5 string 32” scale bass. This is a recent custom order with Adrian and is ‘as new’ condition. It was ordered in strung E to C (and I haven’t changed them). I’m selling it as I just not into five strings (tried twice, lesson learned this time hopefully…).  This bass was delivered in early September and is in mint condition (I’ve maybe spent 3 or 4 hours playing it).
      Tempted to order this again in a 4-string version; it’s a great player, excellent build quality and I’d definitely go for the Haeussel PJ set up with the Aguilar preamp again. 32” is a lot of fun too.
      I still have the double-wall cardboard postal box; price includes insured postage to mainland UK, pm me for a quote to Europe. 
      I also have a G&L LB100 for sale too.

      Selling my Sterling by Musicman Ray34 in natural.  It is in excellent condition and comes with gigbag.
      Bass is great, only selling to cover unexpected bass and Ashdown purchase.
      Delivery is available at £25, I have some shipping boxes and enough bubble wrap to make it secure.

      I've got it into my head that I need to spend more time with my old Vantage fretless.  It is now on the stand in the sitting room where I can practice with my Zoom B3.
      It's a lovely thing for an affordable bass with it's P & J styling, its passive reliability and its overall simplicity.  One minor niggle is that I can't get the E to intonate well at the twelfth because the saddle wont adjust back far enough.  I think it would for lighter gauge strings but its fine.  It is fretless after all.
      Whilst being tolerable, this minor snag got my GAS going in a small way by way of an excuse to sidestep the hardware upgrade pilgrimage and go for a new squeeze, as it were, from the outset.  In simple terms:  I wanna fretless five now!  Heeheehee.  I have to satisfy myself that I can get somewhere half decent with my four first so I am being patient while looking into what's being used by like minded players.
      Two new ideas for me to explore are:
      Short scale fretless five Multi scale fretless five In some respects the two notions are at odds with each other if you consider a multi scale to have a range of, say - 32 to 35 inches.  Despite saying that I don't think it would be a hindrance to have a longer B than I'm used to because much of the convoluted stuff is played on the shorter strings.  Having the shorter strings might help me intonate better without so much of a stretch (damn my "webbed" fingers).
      I don't see multi-scale in the Chowny range but I've really only started to look at this as of this morning.
      Opinions appreciated, especially from owners.
