    I picked this up used for $1k less than new price in mint condition.
    Exact same bass that Inordered and cancelled from Sweetwater this past winter. I remember the number and the weight as these are limited to 105 being made.
    Guess this was meant to be.

    Ive filled the last spot on my bass rack with another StingRay5. :bassist::hyper::p


  2. Beautiful. Normally, a Stingray or a Sabre without the pickguard looks kind of a... "in progress", not complete. But this one has its own allure. Noted the two batteries compartment: why? Is it so different from (say) my '95 one battery Stingray 5?

    Very nice! Congratulations on a really nice new bass! I got to test drive one of these at my local music store a while back. They are very nice instruments.

    So rad. What type of music are you going to rip on that beauty?

    Wow, I remember drooling over this one a year or so ago. Which number is this one?

    Great choice in bass :)
    18v vs 9v. More headroom while using... say, overdrive etc.

    This is not, the bass you were looking for. Get a move on and send it to Dabbler. Get a move on. [waves hand like Obi Wan Kenobi]

    Wow!! That's beautiful! I don't think you could have asked for a nicer grain than the flame maple on that neck. :drool:

    Huge congrats! :bassist::hyper:

    Spidey sense, tingling... Lady either has another rack on the way, or my costume is way too tight.

    Beautiful and congrats!

    How did you find such a beautiful bass so cheap? If you can get it like new at 1/3 the price then Music Man needs to charge less. Price is the only reason I don't own a SLO built Music Man. Congrats on the awesome bass!

    Me and Sting Rays don’t get along, but they do make pretty partners onstage. Your’s definitely rates up there. May it always sound and look great for you! :thumbsup:
    Btw, kudos on a great deal!

    Beautiful bass. I actually played a used one exactly like this at a local Guitar Center just a couple of weeks ago. Very nice.

    If it was in Ocala Fl then this is the same one . It was already listed low and they gave me a great deal. I can't believe it stayed there for 3 weeks un sold.
