Posting for my son who has inherited my bass habit.
Over the past few months he has developed a hankering for a US Musicman Stingray but after forecastic his financial income (pocket money) realises he needs to do a 3-into-1 trade type arrangement.
So ideally the following 3 basses would go in a single straight trade for a US Musicman Stingray (4 string, single pickup models only).
We reckon the three basses would land at the price of a secondhand Stingray (£1350ish). Details follow:
Ibanez SR506 (£350) : usual SR series fast neck and a great way to get an affordable and easy playing six stringer. Has a couple of small dings on edge of body but really clean otherwise. No gig bag unfortunately.
Status Energy (£500): Ash body and fitted with hipshot detuner (original tuner included). Also comes with a Hiscox Status branded case. Bit of thumbnail grazing above the pickup but otherwise in great overall condition.
Status The Groove (£500) : this is the bass that has given him the taste for a Stingray. Awesome sounding bass from the triple coil pickup (I seem to recall one is a dummy coil?). Excellent condition. Includes generic gig bag.
Soooo.....ideally the world would be nice and neat and someone out there is willing to part with a US 4 string single pickup Stingray in straight exchange for these three. We realise the world often isn't that perfect but let's give it a shot....
More pics available upon request. Ideally meet up for trade (edinburgh and central belt) rather than trying to post.
