    I'm selling my Music Man Stingray Bass Guitar was made in the USA in 1977.(I bought this bass from rumble music shop in USA about 2 years ago.) bass weight about 9.2 lbs.

    It shows wear from play including, dings, and dents and other normal play wear, but structurally it is intact with 100 % no issues besides the wear from play. It is all original and has the black epoxy covered preamp. But 1 thing that I need to mention is the bass's side dot have position at fret position same with fretless bass that I'm not sure about the reason that why.(please see the pic below.)

    Price: $2,300 shipped to your home in USA or Canada with 3-5 Business day DHL Services (Can ship worldwide)

    Note: I am in Thailand.Please Pm (conversation) about shipping cost outside USA or Canada.

    Here are the pictures:

    Was probably a fretless neck that was converted IMHO. What is the weight?

    Quite Strange. In pre EB period fretless were rosewood, until 1979, and ebony afterwards. No maple fretless. The fret must be the thin ones...like a pre cbs fender. No jumbo fret before end of 1979 on stingray

    They did make some blank plank Maple neck fretless basses. I've seen 3 of them so they are quite rare. Too bad this one was converted!
