    Edit: firecrasher emailed MusicMan to get a little more info on this bass
    "F12734 - DOB: 05/13/05, Blue Dawn finish"
    Thanks dude!

    For sale is this bursty sparkly blue Ernie Ball MusicMan Sterling. Besides the aesthetic value this bass also plays very nicely and sounds awesome. The Sterling has a more sleek body than the Stringray and also a thinner neck which I prefer. The tone is comparable but I find the Sterling to be a better choice with the toggle switch for the pickup coils. Between that and the 3 band EQ there are a lot of great sounds to be had.

    The bass itself is in very good shape. There are some small flaws and signs of wear that I tried my best to document with pictures. The most notable are two small impressions on the neck and fretboard around the 7th fret. This is pretty much just a cosmetic issue and you barely feel them while playing. The other main flaw is around the top strap button, where it seems there was an excessive amount of pressure put on it, making a sort of small crater around the strap button. This previously had left the strap button loose but I had a luthier tend to it and it is now rock solid.

    I have only owned this bass for around 4 months, it hasn't left my house and has gained no new battles scars during my ownership. The serial code on the neck plate dates it be made in mid 2005. I'm including the hardshell case that came with the bass. The case has some aesthetic damage but no holes or anything, the inside is in great shape.

    $750 cash

    As far as trades go I'm interested in other basses around this price range, I'm kinda open to hear what you have, I'm not looking for any jazz basses though. I would also prefer 4 string fretted basses. Also nice bass amps and cabs. I like Aguliar and Bergatino stuff for more recent brands. I'd like to also hear about cool great sounding older amps too. Go ahead and throw anything worthwhile my way, the worst I'll say is no thanks.

    Cash only. I would be happy to meet you halfway and/or at a music store if you would like to play it through an amp. We can also plug into the speaker system in my car which would be convenient. Feel free to ask any questions.
    Thanks!

    I know I have no feedback currently, but a local sale will of course give you a chance to give the bass a good look yourself. I also have a presence on the forum ilovefuzz.com, and plenty of people on there (some of them post on TB too) will vouch for my credibility, I'd be happy to talk about that if need be.

    All questions are welcome in here or a PM :hyper:

    Okay picture time!

    I just have a stereo console with an 1/8" input, usually for mp3 players, but get a converter on your 1/4" instrumental cable and you have some car speakers to play on!

    Clever. I'll have to try this. One more reason for me to replace my stock stereo from '06 (as if Bluetooth isn't enough).
