    Sting Signature Precision bass neck on '51 Fender reissue body. Great shape, plays and sounds great. Has Lindy Fralin single coil installed. I do not have the original pickup. Previous owner also installed a thumb rest just behind the pickup cover, small hole was drilled, see picture. Comes with hard shell case. Very clean bass. $485 shipped to lower 48 states.

    I am assuming this is a Sting Sig neck on a genuine Fender '51P body ??

    my sting is sunburst, didn't know they made different color. l dropped in a lindy humbucker and use lighter gauge strings, these basses are quite good.

    Hmmmm, honestly I thought this was a stock Signature Sting P. I guess I don't know much about this particular model. I thought it was offered in blonde and burst? Maybe someone can chime in. I really just got this to flip it so I don't have much history on it. Yes it is a Sting neck-no question about that. I assume it is a Japanese Fender '51 reissue body. It does not have the arm contour, it's a slab body. I know for a fact it has a Fralin pickup. Definitely is an ash body. Sorry I am not up on my Sting bass pedigree, I can say this is a nice playing, great looking bass with a Fralin pickup and Sting Neck. I guess that is all I really know about it. Feel free to make an offer.

    hey l am no expert on them either, l just wanted a 50's style p, picked up the sting and a cv 50's p. the sting is the better of the two for my needs, but both needed new pup's, looks great and l am sure it will find a good home. the sting is made in japan and l find japan basses to be pretty good.

    I do believe the 51 P reissue, when it was available, came in sunburst or blonde. The Sting sig just comes in 'burst.

    This is most likely a mix of the 2. And by the way, both were very good basses!

    A few years ago, this was a pretty common thing to do, as the Sting body was actually more like a '54 with the body contours and belly cut, so folks would take the neck from a '51 and put on a Sting body. The Sting was only ever offered in 2TSB, this would be a '51 P body.

    Thanks, that must be it. Sorry I was unaware of what I had. Thanks for the info. I still think I have it priced fairly especially since it has a Fralin pup in there.

    Agree with above deductions. Could this body be a Squier CV ?

    Unlikely, the body looks great and I think the guy I got it from had it for a while, longer than the Squire CV's have been in production.

    I haven't worked enough this year to justify the (very fair) asking price, but here's a free bump for a great instrument!

    Is there anything in particular you're looking for in trades?

    Trades considered for guitars, guitar amps, or maybe other basses.
