    Whatever he's asking for it, he should knock $5 off for this:

    Basically a 2 band ray with a graphite neck. Rare birds indeed! Flea used one in the way early days of RHCP.

    Nice. I just picked one up myself! Can't speak with a lot of knowledge on it yet, but very cool and as elgecko stated, pretty rare.

    Hah....why yes, they are! No biggie. They're all out now. I'd just laid it on the table to start some disassembly and cleaning. Looking forward to getting some fresh strings on it and a good setup.

    It's a 2 band early Stingray with a graphite neck. If it checks out and has no problems buy it.

    As others have said very rare.

    Total crap! Pass on it and have the guy call me because I will be willing to buy it ;-)

    The guy that made the neck, Jerry Dorsch, did a beautiful replane and DSCN0697.JPG refret on mine. After all these years he's still working!

  14. Nice one! Don't see those often. I would like to have a Cutlass III (a Sterling with graphite neck)... :)

    Anyone know if the board is graphite, as well? There's a bit of gunk built up on there, and don't want to use something on there that's not compatible.
