I posted a topic recently about having the choice between two Pre-Ernie Ball Stingrays. However, after trying both several times, It hit me that I was not making rational decisions. The basses actually did not sound very well. On top of that one had several modifications (not very well done), and one had a neck issue and horrible "mojo"? (not in the right places). Maybe they were Frankenstein Ray's I dunno, but It just did not feel right, so no deal. Then today I ran into this baby... Two words : Per-Fect! Serial Number B006713, not sure what year (77-78?)
