Hints: Music Man Stingray 4H from 2014

  1. Hi guys!

    After I bought new Ampeg head and cab 3 years ago it’s finally time for a new bass.

    I am really into Stingray sound and today I found one original US made Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 4H Black from 2014. Condition looks good and price tag is (in my opinion) also quite nice - 42500 Czech crowns (approximately 1800 US dollars). Original Music Man case included. Yeah, it may be more expensive than in the US, but as far as I know prices are overall higher here in Europe.

    I have one photo from the seller. CB7DF6A5-693E-46ED-B6B7-E03374689824.jpeg

    I am going to try it before buying but I expect nothing less than classic punchy Stingray sound.

    So I want to consult it with experts (YOU)! My questions are:

    1. I know that I want Stingray sound, but I am not really an expert in the Ernie Ball Music Man bass guitars. So what about this particular bass? Neck looks like maple. What about year 2014? Are there any better alternatives?

    2. I am going to meet seller in the upcoming days. Is there something I should watch out for? I’ve never bought pre-owned instrument.

    Thank you very much!
