Picked two of these up in a trade- they are stunning the 4 for me will be a keeper ...but I am not much of a 5 string guy...so I'm putting it up for another 4. Of the 5s I've had this is probaly the best sounding/playing one I've had- I think it is on par with USA Laklands and Sadowskys I've owned..
Price how about a negotaible $1150 shipped.
1980-1993 Music Man Stingrays ( might consider a "classic series"
other intersting 4s ..open minded hit me up...

Comes with Ashton ultra light bag (very similar to Sadowsky style).
It is finished in a see thru black stain over the beautifully figured Ash body and a clear custom pickguard. The body and neck have a pearloid binding giving the instrument a boutique look to it and plays and sounds great!
The truss is fully operational and the DB bridge is among one of the best on the market.
The neck and fret board are in good shape and feel great to play on. Very smooth action with singing high notes and great sustain.
There are a few minor dings due to normal play wear. On first looks though it is stunning, and these little cosmetic flaws (see pics) barely detract from the overall majesty of the instrument.
