it is not as good as a real made in USA Stingray. But they make fine beater basses.
$200 with a hardshell case is worth it.
The best deals on used genuine Ernie Balls are the discontinued SUB series (not the SUB by Sterling by Musicman).
The SUB series were made in SLO next to the regular Stingrays. They have slab bodies, flat textured paint and 2 band eq preamps (or passive on some models).
They usually go for $300-500.
I picked up mine for $285.
The one I own doesnt have as great an action as my Rays or my Sterling. But it does have a great tone!
