    Hi-res pictures at http://www.largest.org/stingray/

    Sunburst finish, maple neck. Serial number: B010500. Very good condition. On the lighter end of the scale based on other Stingrays I played. I looked around for quite awhile and played a lot of pre-Ernie Ball Stingrays looking for the right one, and this was hands down the best one I played. It is an incredible player bass, with straight fast neck, no buzz, and huge tone! All original electronics and hardware (3 of 4 rubber string mutes still attached). While it is not in 100% never-before-played mint condition, it is in excellent shape for a 26-year-old instrument. Light (minimal) wear on body. Comes with hardshell case.


    I honestly am having a hard time selling this bass, but I want to focus on upright bass and I can't afford to keep this and my Sadowsky. :)

    Please see pictures at http://www.largest.org/stingray/

    If you have any questions at all, please contact me. This is a used instrument. I want to represent it as honestly as possible. My personal opinion is it would make a great collector piece as well as a tremendous player bass, but like any 26-year-old instrument it does have normal signs of wear. I want you to feel completely comfortable with this transaction before committing to it.

    My ebay id is "largest" so feel free to look at my feedback there.
