    I hate to part with her but I'm downsizing my bass stable to free up some space.

    20th Anniversary Stingray (1996) with a few select upgrades. Excellent condition for a 20 year old instrument with only light play wear.

    Features include:
    • flame maple top on swamp ash body
    • tortoise shell pickguard (glued so there are no screw holes)
    • figured maple neck
    • recessed neck plate
    • light weight (about 8.2 pounds)
    • deluxe hard case

    Upgrades include:
    • Delano MM pickup wound to vintage 70's specs
    • John East MM preamp (3 band w/sweepable mids),
    • passive tone control (using a no-load tone pot and .1uf capacitor)
    • black aluminum knobs
    • Hipshot d-tuner
    • Dunlop strap locks
    • Rotosound Nickel strings

    Note: original pickup, preamp, knobs, and E-string tuner will be included.

    Price is $1950 shipped to the lower 48. Now $1900

    I'm really trying to downsize and free up space so trades would have to be pretty spectacular/unique but narrow spacing 5/6 strings and German Hofners could be tempting.

    Additional Info:
    preamp specs: MMSR 4 KNOB 3 BAND - MM STYLE - BASS

    pickup specs: Products

    I agree. The recessed neck plate is a nice touch too.

    I will be glad when this one finds a good home. It really deserves to be played.

    At about 3:27 in this video you get a quick overview of the unique features:

    There's another one of these on Reverb listed for a lot more money...but the listing had some fun facts from EB:

    From The Music Man site:
    Total of 1246 Anniversary Basses made. With regards to the necks, 713 were Maple, 477 Rosewood, 21 lined fretless, and 35 unlined fretless. No records kept concerning the type of wood used for veneer...flame v quilt Maple. (Per EB). This model introduced the down-sized bridge on Sting Ray Basses. (Per EB). Ash body with various figured Maple tops. Serial located on bridge. Tort PGs glued to body only. Solid bridge saddles. Capstan wheel truss adjustment. 3 Band EQ only. No control plate. Rear mounted electronics. Old style neck plate logo (recessed).
