    Up for grabs is a new (with explanation) fretted SBMM Ray34ca, plus an extra lined Ray34ca FL fretless neck.

    I picked this bass up on Ebay a few weeks back and it was listed as "new". I am the first owner of this bass, but according to a note in the neck pocket, it was a NAMM 2013 display bass, so whether it is technically new or not is up for debate. I originally bought it as an "FL" or lined fretless model, but swapped out the fretless neck for a maple fretted SBMM Ray 34ca neck. According to my bass tech the fretless neck seemed a little unstable when he first did the set up on it, calling it a bit "iffy". I think that means he thought it could possibly pose an issue at some point, but could be made to work if I really wanted it to. Meaning, if I was willing to spend extra cash for him to put in the effort. I only noodle on the fretless at home for laughs, so I wasn't interested in making a project out of it, but I am including the fretless neck as well since he thinks it's workable. As someone who has owned USA made Music Man Stingray basses in the past, I can tell you that these Sterling basses are extremely well made, and are spot on import versions, to my ear anyway, of their American made cousins.

    The Ray 34ca has a thinner nut width than the usual Ray 34 and I find it more comfortable to play. Email me any questions. It includes a quality padded SBMM gig bag. I'm looking for around $450 for it shipped CONUS.

    From the SBMM website:
    The Classic Active Series basses deliver old school vibe and looks for the vintage enthusiast. Lightweight slab bodies (no belly or forearm contours).
    The glossy amber tinted neck features a narrow 38 mm nut width, 34” scale and 21 thin vintage style frets. The finish is a hard glossy coat that exudes the vibe and look of an older instrument.
    Music Man designed 2 band active preamp features volume, treble and bass controls. The preamp and pickup were re-voiced for this model, for a more organic feel and are noise free.

    And from Youtube:

    I'm asking $475 shipped CONUS.

  2. Any interest in swapping/selling the maple neck for rosewood?
