    I have decided to sell some of my stash of Pre-EB Music Man parts. I've had all these since the late 80's/early 90's.

    OK, this one is not a "Holy Grail" of Stingray parts like my Pre-EB prototype Cutlass neck and my unused/unmounted Pre-EB rosewood neck...but just try and buy a 70's Stingray bridge on a whim! Maybe no "Holy Grail", but still as rare as hen's teeth!

    This is a string through bridge with the mute assembly. (The mute foam has long ago rotted off, but I replaced the ones on my Cutlass with mouse pad foam. I'd be glad to include enough mouse pad foam to do this one as well:D)

    It does not have the serial number on it, so the serial number would have been on the neckplate - if I understand correctly, that would date it from (edit - thanks Dluxe) 1976 until mid 1978. See http://www.musicmanbass.org/mycustompage0061.htm

    These pop up REALLY rarely, so I can't compare it to others to see what it is worth. But (like the other Pre-EB MM pieces) I've had it so long, it's worth quite a bit to me!

    So I'm going to price it at a number that I would be OK with selling at. If people think I'm nuts for wanting that much and it doesn't sell and I have to keep it for another 30 years, I'm OK with that too!:D [​IMG]

    Seems like I saw a few pop up at $300 5-10 years ago, so the price that I came to for this mid-late 70's string-through-body Stingray bridge is $350.

    I could be talked into cool trades if you have something you think I'd like...

    BTW, I also have an unused/unmounted Pre EB Stingray neck, and a Pre-EB prototype Cutlass neck in other ads - take a look

    Very cool! These will work for the 1976 until mid 1978 basses. When the bridge came with the serial number the location of the string through hole was moved. Wish I could use this but I need one of the latter type. GLWTS.

    That one had the newer and smaller thumb wheel screws. Yours are the correct larger ones.

  5. Not sure if you have a Reverb account or not but they are easy to create if you have a paypal, I've had a lot of luck moving niche parts there, sold a pre-eb neck there that sat here awhile. GLWTS id love to have a reason to grab the cutlass neck

    You've got real nice early Stingray parts, my friend. You need to expand your collection and buy my 1979 Sabre preamp.

    Been trying to replace this, also wondering if you have the allen bridge plate screws.

    Your bass looks exactly like mine to include the bridge. I just picked my up in trade last week.

    Great I'll check back when I can budget the cash. Wife says I'm spending too much lately. All I've done is bought an Ampeg SVT CL with Ampeg pr 1832 cab, and a new band trailer. Don't see the issue. Lol. Thx.
