i'm considering trading my perfect stingray for a perfect american p-bass. after playing on fenders i realize i like them more and they fit my style much better. this stingray is black with a maple neck. this bass is perfect....no faults whats so ever. i've played on a lot of rays and this one is the best IMO. solid as a rock. will only consider trading it for a P-bass with no faults. by faults i mean construction, set-up, balance, etc.....i don't care if it's scratched up as long as it's solid.
