PRICE DROP, NOW £1100.

 

For Sale, 2008 Musicman Stingray 5 H in Honeyburst.

Great condition and comes in Musicman hard case including wipes, case key, branded cleaning cloth and branded strap. I have owned this from new and used it regularly up until lockdown but have taken great care of it. Case is in excellent condition and is hardly used as bass lived and was transported in top quality Mono M80 case. Weight of bass is 4.25kg/9.4lbs. In case you need the specs:

  • Finish: Honey Burst, with white pickguard and chrome hardware.
  • Body: Select ash.
  • Neck: High grade maple. Quartersawn for maximum stability. Back of the neck unpainted, hand oiled and waxed for a smooth satin feel. Music Man instruments are particularly so famous among musicians, because of the outstanding quality of their necks. The neck is a pleasure to grab, feels perfect to your hand and plays just fantastic!
  • Scale: 34" (Standard long scale).
  • Fretboard: High grade maple.
  • Frets: 22, high profile, narrow width.
  • Nut: 44,5 mm.
  • Headstock: Natural.
  • Tuners: Schaller BM, placed in the 4+1 design.
  • Bridge: Original Music Man USA. Chrome plated, hardened steel bridge plate.
  • Pickups: 1x Original Music Man USA humbucker, with white cover. With alnico pole pieces and additional phantom coil to cancel hum in all 3 positions (serial, parallel and single coil). A classic among the bass pickups, famous for its relentless punch and rocking character.
  • Electronics: 1x volume, 1x treble, 1x mids, 1x bass, 3-way switch.
  • Absolutely outstanding quality of selected woods, craftsmanship, handling and sound!
  • The bass comes with a high-quality original Music Man USA hardshell case and factory accessories.

I put this up for sale before but withdrew it as I would have been sad to see it go but am selling now as I have spotted another bass I desperately want and I only have room for so many. It has that wonderful Stingray growl with the added bonus of a super-tight low B.

I have inspected the bass very carefully and think it has 3 very minor marks, which I have photographed but are very hard to see in reality. One mark is next to the lower heel, below the pick plate, one mark is inside the lower heel recess and one mark is on the upper heel just behind the strap button. I have marked these in the photos, any other apparent marks in the photos are dust/light reflections.

You are very welcome to come and inspect and try. I will courier to you subject to agreeing costs and insurance.

Thank you for looking, let me know if you need any further photos or info.

Update; I've added another photo to try and illustrate that the two marks on the lower heel are almost imperceptible. I've done my best to highlight them but I think my original photos make them look worse than they actually are. This bass is in near-immaculate condition and a stunning 2008 example.

Would you ship to Ireland 

Yes, in principle, subject to checking out courier costs and any post-Brexit stuff and nonsense. I’ll look into it.

So, DPD will ship UK to Ireland for £26.85 standard delivery but that's with no insurance! They will only insure for loss, not damage and that would cost £57.50 extra, making £84.35. While the bass is in a fitted hard case and I would thoroughly pack around the outside, this would have to be entirely at your risk.

I think you might also be liable for import tax but I can't seem to find anything definitive.

Hey. Thanks for getting back to me. The whole import tax thing is a complete hornets nest of a thing. I could end up paying crazy money to get it released from customs. Its a pity cos I would snap that bass up in a heartbeat but I'm hearing horror stories about purchases coming from the UK. I'll do a bit of digging this side and weigh it up 

 

Cheers

Hi, I read that the Irish/EU import tax for a bass manufactured in USA is 3.2% but it does seem very hard to get a straight answer so I could be completely wrong. Appears it’s the country of manufacture that matters, not where you buy it from! Totally understand if this is a bit off-putting but thanks for looking.

Del, this is Michael, think I was talking to you before on adverts.ie :)

 

If you send it to NI you can get around this if you have any relatives up there.
