i'd just like to share with everyone here that i just got my 1980 stingray! woohoo!!! and the great thing about it is i got it for only $446.43!!! it's been refinished, changed tuners and pots but damn does it sound good. tuners are original musicman though. the pots, i have no idea where they're from. hehe. but yeah, it's freakin fantastic! and my old bass teacher a/b'd it with his '77 and they sound exactly the same! yeah!!!!
