    Only lefty bass I've seen was a $60 Austin that looked like it was in crappy condition.

    You're probably not going to find another bass that sounds the same as a Stingray. If that's what you want, then go for it.

    Check out EBAY. I got a nice Hot Rod P for $400 with minor cosmetic issues two years ago. Something suiting your needs will probably pop up within a month or so. I've seen a few Rics, Fenders of all kinds, Ernie Balls, Carvins, you name it. You could always go with Sadowsky or Lakland, but at least one of the two charges an extra 3 Bills for lefty instruments. There are a ton of options out there, you just have to look for them. Also, you might want to consider assembling your own.

    It also helps to fill out your profile to see what you already have, etc.

    Lefty MTD Kingston is more Stingray sound than a P or a Jazz sound. I have one.

    Same here. I really don't care for the tone, too bright for my taste. Trying to figure out a way to mellow it out!:meh:
