F/T, EB Musicman Stingray Classic 5
I'm considering swapping this wonderful bass. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it. It's in great shape, and sounds incredible. I'm just a GASing gearholic with limited fundage, and my Roscoe gets most of my gig time lately.
You know the model by now. It has the famous MM two band preamp with no center indents. It sounds fabulously aggressive. Old style MM bridge with mutes. Stunning coral red color, with a tinted maple birdseye neck and a rosewood board. It will come with the pictured white pearl pickguard, and the original white guard that came on the bass.
I'd consider just about anything of equal value. I may be willing to downgrade a bit if you want to ad some cash. I'm not interested in beginner models though. Please, no Squier, MIM Fender, Rockbass, GL Trib, low end Ibby, etc. I prefer 5's, buy may consider a 4 if it's cool. Worst that can happen is I say no. An ideal trade would be an American Deluxe Jazz 5, a Musicman Big Al 5, A Spector Euro 5, or a 4 string Nash...maybe a Gibson T Bird. Let me know what ya have! I'd also be into another Classic 5 if it had a maple board.

This trade offer is temporarily on hold. I'm doing a neck swap on this bass with another TB'er. He wanted the rosewood board, and I prefer a maple board, so this bass will probably still be available, but later this week, it will be wearing a nice flamed maple board. Pics after it is swapped.

That sure is a classic look with the rosewood board... just sayin'...
|sawzalot ||01-06-2013 10:49 PM |
you sure you don't want to wait for a bit, like until I can unload a whole bunch of gear and make you a $$ offer on it....? Sweet bass!
|maguire ||01-06-2013 11:08 PM |
It's going to be just as classic when it's wearing this mint condition slab of flamed maple! :bassist:
|cheezewiz ||01-07-2013 04:11 AM |
That maple board looks great! I certainly won't be disappointed if I just hold on to this bass!

It will be like a second honeymoon.

Neck looks beautiful on the red!
Very warm. I think that's going to be a rare combo :)
|maguire ||01-10-2013 10:33 AM |
By the way, that neck is super stable and practically mint. I speak from experience.
|cheezewiz ||01-10-2013 11:03 AM |
Since someone asked, cash price would be $1375 shipped.

Heh. You're such a whore. :D Good luck!
I had this bass at my house for a couple of months and it's a really amazing instrument.
And, the color is amazing in person (and not available anymore, to boot).
If it had come to me with the maple fretboard, he wouldn't have gotten it back....

And the weight is? Also, what is the neck profile on these (for reference I like 55-94, Sadowsky 5, and Elrick 5 necks)?

Pm's answered. Jason.hehehe, yep. Kevin, I ll check your site out and see what's there in the same ballpark.
Weight is around 10lb. Standard EB neck. Thinner spacing and narrower than the Sadowsky or 5594.
