    Got this about a month ago,and even thought I do like,I don't love it. The Sterling is my tone these days,so I'm moving this to get another Sterling 5 HH.

    Music Man Ball Family Reserve Stingray 5 HH,model made special for Guitar Center,features a beautiful Honeyburst finish,tortoise shell guard,roasted neck,and an ebony board. Bass is in pristine,like new condition.Recently set up with a fresh set of Elixir .100 to .045's,with a .135 B string. Folks on the EBMM boards say this is the most beautiful SR5 they have ever seen. Comes with factory hardcase,documentation, and shipping box. 1500.00 shipped to the lower 48 states only. No Paypal. Might possibly trade for a mint condition Sterling 5 HH plus a little cash on your end. Email for pics. Serious enquiries only please.

    Just had someone tell that the this wasn't a real Ball Family Reserve. Well,Sterling,Chris,and Brian say different. I love proving people wrong.
