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 wear scratches on the lacquer on the back and corners of the bass.

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.


Serial # B052788
Manufactured December 22nd, 2010

How much does the bass weigh?

Great question,

From the range of several 2014-2018, 4 String Musicman Stingrays 3eqs I've owned, it is definitely on the lighter side of that bunch.

I havent weighed the bass as my bathroom scales are out of order.

According to retailers: Weight 10lbs, 4 oz (4.65 kg) - varies slightly

there are some exceptional necks on the Classics. I have the coral/maple model, with some serious flame :-

Woo, smokin'!  Its a completely different pattern to my neck. 

I've seen a fair few stingray classics over the years with little to no birds eye/figured maple necks. 

Looks like we got lucky 😁

      Words simply don't do this bass the justice it deserves, but hopefully pictures will help!
      The tone is crazy, unlike anything I've ever played. Super versatile, juicy as hell and slaps like a mother, but also cuts through a mix in a very tasteful way. The ash neck give it a warmer tone compared to maple neck MTDs. The Birdseye fingerboard needs to be seen. The sassafras top is a piece of art in itself.
      This was bought new at Bass Direct and just recently got it as part of a trade. Beautiful bass but I'm more of a jazz bass guy myself.
      You can get all the details on it here:
      It's in absolutely mint condition, no dings or anything.
      You could have supremely low action as it's setup at the moment if that's your thing. 
      You can hear the bass on this track, verse 2 is the most 'raw' bass tone in the track:
      Additional Details:
      -Body - Swamp Ash
      -Top - Premium quality Tasmanian Sassafras ( £800 option)
      -Matching heal - (£50 option)
      -Matching head - (£50 option)
      -Satin finish
      -Custom knobs in matching wood (£150 option)
      -Neck - Ash with Titanium bars (£150 option)
      -Fingerboard - Bird’s eye maple, 24 fret (£250 option)
      -Pickups - Custom MTD Bartolini soapbars
      -Preamp  - Custom MTD Bartolini 3 band
      -Finish for body and neck is a satin catalyzed urethane.

      -MTD Pro Tec case (£160 option)
      Plenty of feedback on this thread.

      Selling my Atelier Z Jerry Barnes M265. Top of the line, hand made in Japan, 70s style bass from Atelier. Bought new a few weeks ago and in literally "as new" condition. Fantastic instrument and craftsmanship, but selling as I'm much more of a 60s pickup position / alder body guy. Easily nails the 70s super jazz, Marcus Miller type of tone. It has an upgraded electronics package (including a passive tone knob), adding additional versatility. 70s type of sound but without the huge weight! (pretty light for an ash 5 string). Currently setup with quite low action with no buzz at all.
      Jerry Barnes (Chic's bass player) signature model. 
      Neck : Maple with binding, 21 Frets
      Body : Ash
      Tuners : GOTOH 
      Bridge : Vintage-type
      Pickups : ATELIER Z JBZ-5
      Preamp : ATELIER Z EQ-M
      Control : F vol, R vol/switch A/P, Passive Tone, Stacked Bass/Trenble
      Colour : Vintage Natural gloss
      Gig Bag: Padded deluxe
      Sring spacing at bridge: 19mm
      Weight: 4.5kg

      Up for sale is my beautiful Moollon Jazz bass. It is in mint condition (I've photographed as best as possible the small nicks in the headstock; as it's a nitro finish like pre-CBS Fenders). Plenty of reviews in BassChat.
       Many Moollon reviews & videos online, but it's usually described as the best pre-CBS type jazz bass you can get in 5 strings. Jimmy Coppolo does great copies too but his equivalent model with nitro finish (Classic Supreme) will cost at least double. Very difficult to find and YJ currently has a backlog of 12-14 months as he builds everything by himself.
      No trades unless you have a similar specced Stenback.
      handmade body & neck, finished in multiple layers of super-thin nitrocellulose lacquer hand-wound VJ-60 pickups which capture the tone of an early 60's jazz bass handmade hardware to pre-CBS specs (higher nickel content). alder body V/V/T passive
