    So a relative is visiting Japan and I have the opportunity for a NBD. I have the following options:

    Musicman Stingray 5 H VS/Nat/20th Anniv.
    Rick 4003 FG (or a knackered Maple glo of unknown date)

    I have to make a choice fast, if at all, and at these prices they're a big save. Problem is they're not exactly the things I'm shooting for (Rick Jetglo/Stingray Neck Through Sunburt).... and to be honest I already have a P/J, but it's a fretless Tony Franklin...

    Help me TalkBass. You're my only hope.

    Actually, of all those options the Aerodyne strikes me as your best best.

    You rarely see one of those in vintage white....especially here in the states. Even if you don't like it you could sell it for a profit or trade up for what you really want if it's a good deal over there.

    Other than that do nothing. No need to buy a bass you really don't want just because it's a good deal. Unless, of course, you want to flip it for a profit. (And there's nothing wrong with that either.)

    Welp, I pulled the trigger. I'm getting the Jazz. The musicman I really want is the 5 H Neck through, so unless a 20th anniv. HH comes up I'll save up for that. Thanks for the help guys!
