Got this one from a private seller, yesterday. We met up in a car park. I wore the white carnation. Well, deal done and now the newbie is home, with me. I've had a quick, unplugged and plugged, go with it and am very pleased indeed. This baby is a year younger than my Honeyburst Stingray, being made in 2002 and it is in remarkable condition. Even the tuner buttons show little sign of ware. I guess this 11 year old hasn't seen a lot of action. Lucky me then. Unfortunately with the day being very overcast, I couldn't get much in the way of a good photo of this beauty. The trans-teal body is defintely richer and darker, than the photos show. The only definite change I'll make is, putting my usual brand of strings on it. And maybe, in the future, I'll put a black-pearl pickguard on. Musicman gear always impresses me and I intend to make the most of this impressive bass.
