Will come with the original Music Man StingRay hard case (which was still a paid option in 2002).

 

Non-smoking environment as usual.

 

I'm only selling this bass because I'm thinning down the herd as I've just acquired a Status S2 Classic 5 headed fretless, which suits my taste better than any fretted bass.

 

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.

somebody buy this already, i’m fed up with coming back to this post, i don’t need this, i’m having a hard time with 4 strings as it is... having said that, maybe i could take 2 strings off here, make a living with 3 and use the extra space, build a small cottage, use it as a workspace, maybe rent it out when the circus is in town, have elephants for tea and biscuits, we could jam 24/7, trombones are far underrated except when they’re overrated, which is in a way always, so you see there’s signs of justice everywhere except in this post... time wasted wisely, right?

      Stunning looking Bongo IMO the best colour Orange Pearl, In great condition and with the obligatory Ding on the headstock. Comes with a Hiscox hard case. 4 band EQ sounds quite unique and cuts through in any setting.
      I can post no problem and Local collection in responsible manner is quite Ok.
      Not looking for trades and I’m in Chorley 20 miles North of Manchester. 
       
      Cheers!

      So with an imminent arrival of a new bass 😉, I’ve decided to sell my Pre EB ‘82 Stingray... four bolt neck, the neck is straight, trussrod has life left, frets are in pretty good shape. Original preamp with electrolytic capacitors, linear taper volume pot, factory installed protection resister etc and is all very musical and effective, and gives with the pickup that sound only pre-EBs got, as we all well know! 
      Easy to play with a nice low-medium action, a comfy C-shaped neck and an instrument on light side for a Stingray, weighing in at 9lbs.
      Every part of the bass (except strings and 9V battery of course !) is original. There's no date stamp on the neck-heel, but it does happen, as you can see on Music Man inventory (musicmanbass.global).
      The bass has a very beautiful dark veneer rosewood fingerboard, which was a custom order option at this time I believe.
      Serial number B023268
      Bass will be sold with a soft case.
      Priced at £1760 shipping and fees (if applicable to your location) are not included.

      For trades, only items I would be interested in would be either a Pre EB olympic white fretless Stingray or fretted Sabre.

      I need this gone, so I will look at postage options for anyone seriously interested, UK only for now. Give me a message if you're interested
       
       
      Selling this awesome bass, only because it's not getting used as I finally got the Stingray Classic I've been looking for!
      Price £950
      Been used a lot but in great condition.
      Has a few scuffs here and there, worst being marks around the jack socket, and a small chip in the front top contour.
      Had a couple of nuts break on me so ended up getting one cut(still compensated) Its solid and it's never broken since! Have photographed the worst bits. All cosmetic ofcourse, absolutely no issues with the performance of the bass at all. 
      It sounds awesome, can get a great range from the pickups/eq, always ended up being bass I used for any recording or studio work. Nice weight, with a decent strap its never been an issue, feels nice and solid.
      Have the Musicman hardcase for it too.
      Not prepared to post, at least for now. Welcome to come and give it a play. 
      Given it a nice clean up and a set up. Strung with month old Ernie Ball strings. 
      *Weighed on bathroom scales and its around 5kg. Probably just over, it's a bit of a beast! But it's worth it, and with a decent strap it's not a problem. 
      Any questions please ask!
