    In lieu of me being laid off since this pass April,I have decided to make the ultimate sacrifice. First I am going to apply for Social Security since I will be 62 in February of 2014. This will cause a drastic cut in my future income. Second thing is I will be selling off a bunch of my higher end bass's. I will list these in order of highest price to lowest. These are rock bottom prices on my end,and there will be no deviation of price,nor do I want any trades. Price will not include shipping. This will be on the buyer. I do ship Fed Ex Ground insured. I will consider non Conus buyers,as long as you cover all shipping costs. I will accept cash,check,money order,etc. Not willing to eat any fees. Also in no hurry to move these. If you need time to put funds together,I will work with you. Below are the listed bass's. Message me for any pics,as there are way to many here to post. I will send them to your email address. Also I can be reached at 302-893-2089 for a faster contact.

    Message board is a buzzin! Here is a shot of the StingRay 5! Nicest used Stingray you can buy for the price. This could go on the wall in a music store as a new one!!

    Thank You Vintage Guy for quick response...

    Can I ask for two more shots: one of the full back of the neck and one full front of the fretboard...

    I'd like to see the full grain pattern the back and front please.

    I like that white pearloid on her,...clean instrument sir!

    If it is, don't hesitate. I owned that bass (bought it new) and stupidly sold it in a fit of GAS. It is one of the better Rays that I've owned/played. I really wish I had the extra coin to buy it back. I pm'd Charles about it as soon as the listing went up but I just can't swing it right now.
