    I came across a 76' Music man Stingray for $1299. It said in mint con. For that price I can get a brand new one. what advantages or differences are there in a 76' Ray and a new one? Is it worth it to get the 76'. Its even sunburst and maple fretboard. Exactly what I am looking for.

    It also said "OHSC" I have seen this several times with different basses. What does this mean?

    Irie01,

    Don't hesitate. If this MMSR is really a mint 1976, go get it before it's too late. Most pre-EB MMSR's generally go for $ 1,500 / 1,800. I had a 1980 one, and I still regret I sold it.

    I double OHSC = Original Hard Shell Case.

    All the best,

    I'm afraid I'm one of these people who likes new stuff. If you can geta new one, with a warranty and all that, go get it. Newer ones will alsi exyend battery life, as the early active technology wasn't that great - I have a guitarist friend who bought a pre-CBS MM Stingray, it seems to eat batteries very quickly!


    I'm not a very vintage person - I don't like vintage instruments, classic cars or classic bikes!! For my money I like up to date, reliabale and technologically advanced!!! Just my 2 cents worth!

    Vintage Stingrays are nice, but IMHO the Ernie Balls are just as good. If it were me, I would buy a new one.
