Stingray Special 4H in Jet Black finish. F777 serial number indicates 2018 production, which should also indicate swamp ash body (and so denoted on the GC sale tag). I rarely buy new basses at GC, let alone on impulse, but it happened here. I went to local GC looking for an acoustic bass and saw this hanging on the wall.....hit by "the thunderbolt" (Godfather reference) I roared home, grabbed some trade bait and went back to make the deal. It had some fret sprout from hanging on their wall, so I made the sale contingent upon their tech cleaning that up, which they did nicely. Since then, it's mostly been a "case queen", rarely leaving my house, so condition is still very nice. I installed Schaller strap locks, but originals are included. For increased stealthiness, I had Chandler make a custom pickguard in 1-ply matte black. Original B/W/B guard is also included, along with the factory "goodie" bag and tools, etc. I strung it with Labella Golds which may not be the intuitive choice, but the versatile electronics available on the Special make them really sparkle. Bass weighs a comfortable 8lbs, 5 oz and balances nicely on a strap. Price drop to 1500 shipped and Paypal'd to the lower 48 - please, no trade offers as I have way too much stuff already and this sale is part of a downsizing effort.
