    Just picked up a Stingray Special 5H, so this goes out. $350 shipped to lower 48. HI and AK add $25.

    Sounds great, plays great (after a setup/fret dress/etc./BRAND NEW set of Ernie Ball Slinky 5’s) and really rocks for a ‘cheap’ bass! Weight: 9 lbs 4 oz (9.25 lbs) Comes from a smoke free, pet free home.

    Looking to get $350 or best offer. If you want it for a lower price, just shoot me a PM and we can chat about it. Ive been told I am pleasant to work with... However, this is a killer deal at this price! PayPal gets it to you as soon as possible. Comes with a well worn, but still extremely protective, heavily padded Rockbass Gigbag.

    • Purchased in Dec 2018. Serial shows as B094202
    • Basswood body
    • Flamed (lightly, but it’s there!) maple neck with maple board
    • Check out the side of the fretboard: filled kerfs! When is the last time you saw that?
    • Dead on straight action and intonation
    • Hipshot USA HB6Y Satin/Stainless Tuners
    • Hipshot 17mm Stainless Steel Bridge (has the quick release feature!)
    • Bar style string retainer (original round retainer is included)
    • Stock electronics: ceramic magnet/steel pole pickup with 2 band preamp (treble and bass cut/boost). Surprisingly, dead quiet. The cavities have graphite shielding.
    I made one mod to the pickup: I kept popping the strings on the pole pieces, so I added epoxy to the top and sanded flat. The pic shows a bunch of white spots, but it looks full black in person (as in the pic of the whole bass). There are a few imperfections in the coating, so maybe the light was catching those. I can’t understand the pics...

    Let me know if you have any questions...
