Any news on those budget stingrays?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Komakino, Sep 1, 2001.


  1. Hey all,

    Remember a thread a while ago about budget stingrays? I was wondering if anyone has heard anything else about them....I looked on the EB/MM website but I couldn't find anything.

    If anyone knows anything could they let us all know?

    Cheers.

  4. How much would one of those go for in the US, agyeman? And where are they made?
     
  5. The 4 string OLP Stingray would list for 363.63US dollars, which means around probably around a $200-$300 bass guitar.. which I will definately be looking into when they come out on this side of the ocean :)

    According to Guitarist magazine they are made in China.

    HWK2 has answered your question about the $$$.

    SamAsh is tellin a Stingray 4, for $1200, so i guess that is a ripoff??
     
  11. Those are different types of Stingrays, the ones that this post is about are the imports, the one at Sam Ash is made in the USA and a lot higher in quality.
