    I don't know much about the Music Man basses and I'm trying to figure what this is (USA, off shore, etc).
    It's a fretless for sale locally for $600
    Any help is appreciated ImageUploadedByTalkBass1388497129.827117.jpg ImageUploadedByTalkBass1388497149.189229.jpg

    I believe that's a USA Sterling.

    Nice piece. Definitely worth $600. USA Sterling HS. With hard case? If neck is straight, and it works as new I'd grab it.

    Looks like the real deal to me - great price, too... Also, it's the HS, which is my favorite EBMM pup setup, and more valuable than the regular H...

    That's an amazing price, I'd buy in a minute. Looks to be early 2000s with HS but non-compensated nut.

    Definitely looks MIA - in which case it's a steal, even without a hardshell case.

    You can tell for sure by looking at the back of the headstock. It should have printed on it that it's made in San Luis Obispo, CA, USA. Similar to this:

    Plus, the matching headstock. They're out there but not as abundant as standard finishes.

    I'd buy it, if even to flip it.

    $600 seems like a great deal. If you can look it over real good first to make sure it hasn't been dropped or damaged in some way.
