SOLD: 2020 Music Man Stingray Special 5 in Aqua Sparkle
£1700

Recommended Posts

Well, as is the way this year, my band where I needed a 5 String has folded. There is no real need for me to play a 5 String elsewhere right now, so I'm putting this one up for sale. 

It's a 2020 Music Man Stingray Special 5 String that I bought from Andertons for £2,099 about six months ago. It's in immaculate condition (still has the stickers on the back) and comes with the case Candy and original hard case in equally good condition. 

It's in Aqua Sparkle which is simply stunning and has the factory fitted ebony fingerboard. It weighs 8lbs 14oz but I'd call it 9lbs to be safe and is easily the best 5 String I've played. These Specials really are something else.

Im looking for £1,600 plus postage but would be happy to meet near Monmouth if we could work something out safely. 

I'd consider a px for a Music Man Stingray 2EQ Unlined Fretless if its in good condition and a nice weight, plus cash my way.

Bump. I'd also consider trades for a Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster or a USA Strat in great condition with a rosewood fingerboard plus cash my way

Very nice Nick, now that my year of self-imposed zero spend on bass related stuff is at an end this is the sort of thing I'd be looking at.  Unfortunately other bases will have to exit the building to make room.

We're all good thanks Lee. Have you considered robbing a bank? It's not as if you'll look suspicious entering one wearing a mask now. Just a thought....😉

Gotta say, even as I was writing my previous comment, the thought did occur to me.... now, if it were fretless, I would have had a real dilemma! 😵😱😀

Damn, that's a real shame. When you are on the hunt for a Special in sparkle edition (4 or 5) with a slight preference for the charcoal and you see this passing. I checked multiple sites and unfortunately this is also where Brexit hits in, I would need to pay another 21% taxes and a customs clearance. Good luck mate.

Nice long thumb rest for the E string on it :)

True. It's heavily discounted too ;)

Mark D Phillips I'm sure would turn it in to ta three string Bass for those poor afflicted people with extra large hands

Thanks chaps, it really is the best 5'er I've played and I keep having that "Do I, Don't I" debate.
