NEW STINGRAY!!!!!!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by bassplayingdan, Mar 17, 2003.


  1. Unfortunatly, I cant play it until I pull my grades up and pay for it. Its a really nice looking and sounding bass though. At Guitar Center, it was only $790 (including tax) brand new so i convinced my dad to buy it while it was at thins great price even though i still dont have enough money.

    I hate you guys:spit: Alright, I guess i'm just jealous. That makes two of you who have gotten the same bass as I did for $1050 18 months ago. Congrats, you'll love it. If that's not motivation for getting your grades up, I don't know what is.

    Nice bass. Great color. What's it called. For that price, I'd ever buy one. ;)

    Was that the original case? It looks like a Fender case. All of my MM basses came with rectangular cases. In any event, nice bass. Start studying so you can play it!

    Go study for a few hours a night minimum. That is a great looking Ray4-if i'm not mistaken that's Burnt Apple right? none translucent w/metallic flake thingys. I like it. I know a Ray5 is a bit different than a Ray4 but trust me, study as much as possible so that once your grades are up you can play that bass. Have Fun :bassist:

    whether you are playing bass or not,always try to the best you can in school.I understand having something to motivate you,but you must understand that this is alot bigger than palying a bass the education that you recieve now in most cases will pay good dividends for you if it is needed because when you get right down to it your education can't help your Dad,Mother,Brother or Sisdter (if you have any sibilings)it can only benefit you and that's who it's about.If you are going to put good energy into practicing your instrument please,if you can study you academics with tghe same kind of intensity if you can.Hey Man,congrats on getting a nice bass I hope that you will enjoy it as I did when my dad bought me my 1st good bass suprisingly it was a 1979 MM Sabre and remember to bust your ass" in trying to make good grades the same way you dad busted his ass on the job to get you the bass of your dreams

    Good luck;)

    You guys over there have quite cheap Stingrays.
    I am from Germany and the cheapest price of a Stingray MM30 was about 2100 Euros, which is about the same in US Dollars. Even the Used ones costs at least over 1000 Dollars.
    Thanks God for the internet and the shipping service. My dreams can come true...

    Congrats on that bass man, I've played those and they're great.

    I woud like to bring up another question though. I havent looked at the pics but I'd like to know if the make the black stingray in a 5-string model. It is black with a different shade of black in a circle on the body. I just wanna know if they make that in a 5???
     
  14. Does anybody have ideas on how to earn $790 as soon as possible because not only do i need to get good grades but i also need to pay for it.

    The color is called Black Burst Cherry.

    There is a Stingray5 in black with a black pickguard on display in the bass section of the Austin TX Guitar Center. (In response to Piezoman's question)
     
  15. Oh i forgot to add that yes, that is a Fender case. My other bass is a MIM Fender Pbass i got at a pawn shop for $200. Its a very good instrument, but doesnt have as many great freatures as the Stingray.

  18. Hey Bassplayingdan, congrats on getting a 'Ray.

    $790 for a new one? That's gotta be the best price I ever heard of. That's not a bad price for a used one in good condition. Study hard so you can enjoy it.

    Hey Rayzak, don't feel bad. I paid almost $1,200 for my 'Ray. I guess they saw me coming that day.:( :D

    Enjoy, everyone.
