I just got a loaner of a used Stingray from the music store that's doing a setup on my Rick 4003. The Stingray's pretty beat up appearance-wise, though it sounds great( a little fret rattle, but nothing a few turns of an allen wrench won't fix) and everything seems to be in good working order. The thing that shocks me is the price tag on the Stingray -$800.00. Now, I don't know if this is the price the owner is asking or if it's the music store price, but it seems an extravagantly high price for a used bass that's obviously been around the block a few times. I like the neck alot, but I wouldn't consider it anything special. I have no problem beating on the Stingray until my Rick is ready, but I doubt seriously I'd ever shell out 800 clams for it. Is this a case of me not having any idea what I'm talking about, or a case of the owner or the music store trying to take someone for a ride?
