For trade : 3 basses for a Stingray

Recommended Posts

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 forecasting 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  : 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 : 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 : 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.

      Used but in excellent condition. Not gigged and only used in a smoke and pet free home.
      2 marks present: one on back lower bout and one front/side upper bout (under where you'd rest your forearm). See photos.
      Slightly reluctant sale as trying to get funds for another bass by selling multiple basses but they haven't all sold as quick as I'd like. So this one being added to the mix. For that reason no trades.
      Bought from Bass Direct and here is their listing:  Bass Direct Photos
      Blurb from online:
      The Ibanez SRH505 hollowbody electric bass achieves the ideal combination of elegance and performance. A smooth acoustic-tinged rumble awaits you when you plug into your favorite amp. Experience extreme resonance, by way of this bass's hollow construction. The rock-solid stability that's provided by this bass's 5-piece jatoba/bubinga neck. An AeroSilk Piezo system injects the Ibanez SRH500 hollowbody electric bass with an upright double bass sound and unbelievable touch response.
