    I'm thinking of getting this musicman stingray, but i need help, this ones a 2 band eq with piezo pickups at the bridge, sunrise finish with translucent pickguard american birds-eye maple neck, and its 760 quid. 1989 model i think.

    Should i go for it? or should i go for something else, or should I falk out more and get a new model of the stingray?

    is it just as good as the most recent Stingray model, soundwise aswell

    Cheers very much

    my friend recently got one and unless you really want a 3 band eq and you want loads of mids get a new one

    but you really cant beat the feeling of a well aged hard played guitar

    760 is a fair price

    I don't know what quid is because I'm in the states... so can't help you on whether or not price is fair. However, I actually prefer the late 80's and early 90's Stingrays to the modern ones especially if it has the wheel truss rod over the "bullet" style. I own a '91, '92, and '96. I like them all but the 91 probably sounds the best. The 96 is a close runner-up.

    I say go for it.
