Music Man Stingray 30th Anniversary
Up for sale is a great Stingray. It's a 30th anniversary model from 2006. Apparently these are scarce, as only 783 were produced.
The body is made of mahogany, which is unusual for a Music Man. The neck is made of a high grade figured maple. Stunning! The body and neck are completely finished in a transparent crimson red.
Its a great, open sounding Ray. I've had a few and played a bunch, and this is definitely one of the best sounding I've encountered. It even sounds great with dead strings!
The Ray is in good shape. It has its user marks, but nothing serious. It's mostly surface scratching and a dent at the bottom.
The original tolex hardcase is included.
The bass is now fitted with fresh DR fat beams.
I've had this listed earlier, but withdrawn it due to doubts as it is a great bass. I haven't played it since withdrawing it, so I made up my mind and decided to let it go for real now. I still have a Sabre for the MM sound, so I'm happy .
Asking €1.550 (which is around £1395 nowadays)
The bass is located in the Netherlands, but could be shipped fully insured within europe/UK.
Reasonable cash offers and (partial) trades are welcome; fretless blade jazz, bunch of effects pedals per example. I am not looking for 1-1 trades.
Lovely '82 Precision Special, made in the USA. This is a more versatile version of the traditional P bass, with an added 2eq preamp. In passive mode, the special works just like any other precision. Though in active mode, this bass can add something special by tweaking the high and low frequencies.
The neck has a wide 44mm profile and feels great imo.
This Fender is almost 40 years old, so it has gathered its lacquer damages from use throughout the years. The candy apple red lacquer also has gotten matte, which is not unusual for car finishes from this era. Technically the bass is all good functioning with a straight and adjustable neck and electronics that work like they should. The center position of the bass eq knob doesn't feel very clear, though this should be fixable by tightening the back of the pot (so I was told). Its fully functional though.
It is a great playing and great sounding Precision, which will be suitable for many styles. The bass has been set up with fresh Sadowsky 45-105 stainless strings.
The original hardcase is included. It is missing one latch, but is fine otherwise.
Asking price: €1.850
The bass is located in the Netherlands, but can be shipped within Europe/UK at buyers risk/costs. Shipping rates can go from €35 and up, depending on the insured amount.
I will listen to partial trade offers! A good Stingray (preferably early 90s w lacquered neck) may have my special attention. Further you may feel free to tempt me.
