    For sale or trade is the sought-after OLP Musicman Tony Levin Stingray 5-string model in rare quilted maple. Not too many of these come up which makes this even more appealing for the Tony Levin fan that wants a very playable bass that is also a very affordable collectible!

    Well before SBMM, the OLP line of licensed Music Man basses were introduced as EBMMs initial foray into making much more affordable quality instruments so that they could get into the hands of many more players. They licensed their designs to OLP who made instruments abroad at a much lower price point. With the success of the line, OLP decided to make a significantly higher quality bass while still keeping to a price point well below that of USA MM basses. Thus the OLP Tony Levin Signature was introduced offering a well-built 5-string made of nice woods and offering active electronics. As such, this bass is a great re-creation of a MusicMan Stingray 5-string, licensed and approved by Ernie Ball, and features an intuitive and effective 3-band EQ at a very affordable price. Think of the quality as on par with the SBMM SR35 with a slightly simplified electronics configuration for a lot less money!

    This particular bass is a bit unique as most of the OLP Tony Levin basses that come up for sale are in the peach finish. This one has a really nice piece of quilt maple on the body with matching quilt maple on the headstock. Very sharp looking bass.

    The bass plays great and sounds great. The neck is fast, in great shape and very comfortable to play. The bass is very responsive to the touch and rewarding to groove on. Grab a set of Funk Fingers and you are in the Tony Levin business!

    The condition of this bass is excellent cosmetically and otherwise. The pictures should speak for themselves. This is a high quality licensed copy that gets you near the SR5 tone, feel and vibe on a low budget.

    Includes an old School Sam Ash gig bag, made in the USA.

    Asking $SOLD obo shipped CONUS, add an extra $25 for shipping to MST or PST time zones. Bass will be double boxed and fully insured.

    As for trades, I am interested in Fender DLX JV Basses or USA Music Man Subs. Might be interested in a MIM J or P in a cool finish. Also a G&L L-2500 Tribute or Ibanez ATK would do the trick. We can do trade plus cash in either direction for the right trade.

    Thanks for looking and if you have any questions, please PM me.

    This is one snazzy looking bass! IMO, much prettier than the peach one.

    Happy Black Friday. For the price this bass would make a nice stocking stuffer don't you think?

    And tell me you wouldn't love to find a licensed Stingray 5 artist model in your stocking on Xmas?!
