So I finally tracked one down...

A teal Musicman USA SUB!

The first tutor I had for bass had one of these in the black/grey/graphite colourway, and I remember thinking it was so cool. Little did I know how great these basses were, and as many of you on here know, these are basically a Stingray with some of the 'luxuries' removed.

This one has had a bit of love and attention, so frets are in lovely condition and the neck has been stripped of the black paint to reveal a lovely bit of maple underneath. It has also had the 'tasteful' checkerplate pickguard replaced with a W/B/W replacement.

This lovely example came from @Jimbogubson on here via an appropriately socially distanced purchase made over the bank holiday weekend!

I will probably switch out the pickguard for a grey pearloid one, and I would like to fit a Zero-Mod thumbrest, but the shipping cost and time make me a bit nervous at the moment (hence the thread in the Accessories forum).

Suffice to say I am a very happy chappy!

Glad you and the Ray are hitting it off Bruce. It certainly looks comfortable in those luxurious surroundings.

And was an absolute pleasure doing business.

enjoy your new bass fella!

Congratulations. Great basses, I had one in the same colour.

Just needs a black plate! 😎

I've opted for grey pearl, so still darker but with a bit of 'texture' to match the rest of the bass
