    I have a 99 US made Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray for sale. It's got the vintage sunburst finish, rosewood board, non-matching headstock. It's in really awesome shape, the finish is practically new other than 1 ding and 1 chip and they are hard to notice. The back has absolutely no buckle wear, no fret wear, no scratches, no swirls. For $850/Best offer, I'll ship it to your house!!! I don't need to mention specs here do I? I assume we all know what a Stingray is.

    Hey Adam, how is it going? Still playing with Chopper's band?

    That's a nice looking ray. Where did you get it?

    Ive never seen a used ernie ball sell for over 800. i saw one sell for over 700 because someone broke their bass the same day as a gig. Other than that, ive seen probably 50 go for 600-699

    Thanks. That's why I put the "/offer" on there. It's negotiation. It's what makes Capitalism grand!
     
  6. Dude, if you are gona try and blag some money off, at least change you sentence to do it (if you dont know what im talking about, check out The Bass Guru's ad for a Ray5) please, its just insulting.

    Yeah, see, I'm not going to tear you apart in a thread... it's petty, vindictive, and frankly, just too easy!!!

    I've seen MM's go for 6-700 too. Most were black or solid, some were nicer. I used to work at Guitar Center and saw them go used for $799 whenever they were in stock. This has upgrades, is in great shape, and would be a bargain compared to a new model at $1300 (which is outrageous!).

    If anyone wants it for $850, great. If you want it for $800, PM. If you want lower, PM. If you are going to be a jerk and talk **** about it in a public forum, go ahead with that too. But I'd like to keep this to serious people with serious offers. If you feel like a word battle, start a thread in Misc/Off topic/basses about the cost of used stingrays and I'll join in.

    Thanks,
    Adam Falkner

    Unless you are planning on buying the bass, why not keep your thoughts about the asking price to yourself? (I'll just cut and paste this comment into the other thread like you did :meh: )

    Yeah, it's kind of one of those "had to be there" jokes :p

    Rojo, sorry to hijack your thread - Adam's comments just rubbed me the wrong way. Best of luck with the bass sale - it looks like a great bass!

    I'm willing to go $750 and the cost of shipping. It's bill time and I need money. Yes, I would've liked $850, but no bites, so PM me if $750+shipping intrigues you.
