Agreed. Getting a 'ray cheap is talked about a LOT on here, but they are few & far between.
I'm currently in the market for one and the cheapest I've seen was $1100.
You could look at the Sterling by Music Man SUB Ray5, or if you have a bit more to spend the Sterling by Music Man Ray35.
Both solid basses for the money and will get you VERY close to a US-made Music Man Stingray/Sterling 5.
