    I've got to pay off some other recent purchases, so (unfortunately) one of my prized Sterlings has to go! I've had this one for less time than the others, so this beauty got picked for the selling block!

    A Music Man Sterling - dark red burst, rosewood fingerboard. Comes in a gig bag.

    Condition: as close to MINT as you'll find. The ONLY thing I see is a miniscule dimple just above the mid control that could easily be just a "mark" in the wood. It is not deep, does not break the paint or clearcoat and is just over 1/16" in diameter.
    One of those things that you wouldn't find unless you were looking for it. NOT A MARK ANYWHERE else!

    Strings are DR (I believe) and still sound like they are new.

    I'll post pics tonight.

    I got this for a good price and will pass along (a good price).

    REVISED! Now asking only $775 shipped, with Paypal - or - $750 shipped with a US Postal MO!!

    You WON'T be disappointed with this bass!

    Good questions!

    ONE pickup

    It's got the "non-recessed" neck plate, so I would guess it's no older than maybe a 2002-2003??

    NOTE: I went over the bass with a "fine tooth comb" when I got home from work. Forgot about a little ding on the edge, not far from the input jack. It's may1/8" square. You don't see it unless you turn the bass upside down.

    But -for a bass with black edges, there aren't even any "swirl marks in the black areas! Except the the little ding by the jack, the edges are SPOTLESS!

    Here's a pic of the edge ding and another pic...

    Oh man somebody jump on this. If you guys didn't already know, the Rays and Sterlings that have a solid color paint have a body wood of alder. This one is ash.

    That must sound awesome.

    Not entirely true. Most of them (even the solid color ones)are Swamp Ash.I've had a tour of the factory and it's one of the questions that I asked. The main difference with a transparent finish is that they use a nicer looking piece of wood.That being said,that is fine looking bass for a very good price.....Bump:hyper:
    If you decide to consider trades I have a really nice Honeyburst/Maple Stingray 4:ninja:

    Thanks to the Hong Kong folks for the offer, but I'd like to keep it simple and sell it within the USA.

    Comes with a gig bag, serial # above!

    Still available! :hyper:

    This is killing me!! If it was a tobacco sunburst with matching headstock it would already be on it's way to me by now!
