    Wow- that looks nice! I hadn't heard of these until now, either. What a nice deal, too. Enjoy playing it.

    Got my bass today! In great shape and plays great. Decided to put the neck on an existing bass I have and sell the body. Black just doesn't do it for me.

    Not a pearloid guard fan but it works here. Good looking bass.

    Nice find!
    Pretty sure you’re right - I’m no expert but did a quick a/b comparison & it definitely checks every box for the VM series p bass.
    Looks in great shape too, Altho always hard to tell from photos.
    If these are as great as everyone says they are, that’s a ridiculous price.

    Heads up on what seems like a hot deal. X-posted from the do not buy thread, just in case:

    Took a gamble on an EBMM at 699 and its a full on fake. I'm returning it today, so it'll probably pop back up immediately. Here'e their item description -


    113817041-00-120x120-.
    Used Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 4 String Black Electric Bass Guitar


    Here's a link to a thread I made about it in the regular Basses forum - EBMM Experts Assemble! *** is this?

    I used to work at a GC a long time ago and I had seen some skyline Laklands brought in that were altered to look like US ones, but I've never seen a fake Stingray. That was before the Sterling SUB line was out, so maybe it's easy to do. It looked legit from the small photo, at least! Anyway, don't be fooled!

    Sorry, I'm misusing this thread, I know it's for hot used deals, but I just had to chime in on this.

    It makes me beyond angry that a chain store operating at this level of incompetency puts really good music stores out of the retail market. All of the local music shops near me rely on lessons and pretty much just that.

    This bass is an obvious fake when you have anything more than the single crappy picture they posted.

    It's either still listed now, or has been relisted by them. That's very frustrating.
