Musicman Stingray HS Natural/Tort - SOLD
£999
Hove

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Bought a couple of years back from the Bass Gallery in Camden. Wonderful example of a Stringray, just moving to jazzes instead (also first baby making me glance at finances a little...)

Original advert:

https://thebassgallery.com/collections/bass/products/ernie-ball-music-man-stingray-2

Previous owner modded/upgraded it by adding the neck pickup and installing Nordstrand pickups and an 18v pre-amp. Volume pot has pull/push function for active/passive switching - perfect for channeling your inner Joe Dart. 2EQ. Serial number indicates that it started life as a 2010 single H model.

Excellent overall condition, with one or two small dings on the body but very hard to see against the wood grain. Weight comes in at just over 4kg. Soft case included.

Come and give it a try if you're ever in Hove!

Underpriced IMO.

Hard to find a Ray for under £1k and this looks better than most I've seen for more...

I apologise in advance for the stupid question but is the J pickup “on” all the time or does it have its separate control?

Lovely looking bass, those Nordstrand sound awesome (I have them in my MM Sterling and jazz basses) East preamp too, fantastic.

Are you certain his is originally an HS as the jazz pickup looks too far back! Has this been modded? Great price too 😁

A standard HS would usually have a slider/selector and no stack knobs.

Even given the mod, I still think it’s work a bit more than the asking price.

Nice looking bass. I’m sure it won’t be around for too long.

      MusicMan Stingray Classic 4 2EQ Vintage Burst, Birds Eye Maple Neck (No Trades)
      Located in Manchester
      Beautiful bass, currently out of production, a childhood dream infact was fulfilled by owning one. Alas its time to move on and pay off some bills.
      Bass functions 100%, everything works and all electronics (pre-amp and pickup) are stock 
      Was setup last month by guitar repair workshop in PMT Manchester.
      I have included a ton of extras, (see pic) Polytuner, Pickguards, Pickup cover, Strap, Fender Cable, Extra foam mutes.
      Has one small dent on the front above the arm rest and common surface scratches on the lacquer on the back of the bass. (Included a picture.)
      Neck has a thin folded piece of sandiing paper i put in as a shim as I play with super low action.
      The stringray class by design has a limit on how low the bridge scews can go, a shim was my way around this.
      Looking to post in the UK as a family member is extremely vulnerable to covid 19, can't have anyone over.

      I'm thinning the herd so this beauty has got to go. It's a stunning bass with a beautiful birdseye/flame maple neck that many 'rays of this era are known for.  This bass also had a fret level and set up by John Shuker last year.
      It comes with a hard case which I believe is original.  It's not one of the Musicman moulded cases, but I've been informed that it's a SKB which were used along with the G&G cases around this era.  It's certainly made for a Stingray as the inner moulding at the headstock has the lower cut-out for the G tuner.
      Manufactured 29th October 1992 Maple neck with Rosewood board Ash body Translucent Teal finish Matt black/white/black plate Metal battery cover 'Off-set' string entry type bridge with mutes 6 bolt neck plate Weight 9lb 13oz Neck width at nut 43mm It's in wonderful condition with only a couple of indentations to the finish on the body (nothing at all that has gone through the finish). 
      I'll try to capture these and add photos later.  EDIT - Photos added showing the worst bruises I can capture.  As you can see, they take nothing away from the bass. I'm just trying to be thorough.
      Collection or meet up only on this at present as I'm short of packaging materials. I am however willing to drive a fair distance for a motorway services rendezvous!
      Not interested in any trades at this time thank you.
