beautiful Sterling StingRay5 Bass Guitar. Condition is A1, good as new. Everything works as it should and I love the “Tobacco” sunburst colour. I brought it new around October 2019 for a new band which didn’t take off, so now this beauty is surplus to requirements. But it’s a great bass and quite light for a 5 string bass at 9.4lbs
FS: 2011 MusicMan StingRay5 H - £1250 ono
Includes: Original case with keys & New set of strings
Perfect Condition, I have had it from new, it's never been gigged, its been to about 2 practice sessions and has probably had about 20 hours play time in the whole time i have had it.
Lovely bass but i can't justify keeping it, given how much its been used and i don't have time to play anymore.

With a heavy heart i'm putting my 2001 Warwick SS1 5 string up for sale.
When I got it 3 years ago it was in a dire situation in its original "finish", it was all scratched up and the previous owner just kept waxing without cleaning, so a lot of grime had built up, one of the original saddles was lost and had been replaced with a smaller one, and the jack plug only worked continuously in passive mode, active was interrupted.
So i replaced the whole bridge, will provide the old one for parts, i think i still have the original knobs it came with but they were just a little more tarnished and had lost their shine.
When i bought the bridge and measured everything I realized this is actually the broad neck version and not the normal one, i only had a rockbass to compare it to, and that's not a fair comparison.
2 years ago i had it professionally refinished by one of the Crimson Guitars tutors. It is now in a lovely semi satin finish, and a nice red which i think actually enhances the flamed maple, we managed to cover and clean most of the scratches but some can still be seen.
I have also installed recessed Dunlop straplocks but i can provide the original ones should anyone endeavour to install them back, i am not very skilled in woodwork and didn't want to screw it up.(get it?!)
The preamp and pickups are original, preamp is 3 band active/passive and honestly the tone out of it is unbelievable.
The neck is beautiful, a little on the thicc side, but feels very comfortable and compliments the looks and sound of the bass.
Only selling as the addition of a new bass will basically mean this will not be used at all anymore.
Original specs as per warwick serial no.
2001 Streamer Stage 1
Flamed maple AA body
Flamed maple neck
Natural oil finish(not any more)
And i think the fretboard is Wenge but it's not mentioned on the specs.
It has been my main war horse for the past 2 years so it has a few newer scars, all can be seen in the photos. I keep my action pretty high as i play in A tuning. It could do with a clean and maybe a setup. Strings are fairly recent D'Daddario nickels 135 and lower.
Any questions let me know, not interested in trades, unless it's a 5 string fanned fret/headless/both.
Offers welcome as price is not fixed.
I prefer collection only from Lewisham, London or around the South East London area.
Will come with a Hiscox lifelite HSC.
Price drop: £1500 ONO
