    Fellow Low Enders,

    Up for sale or trade is a gorgeous & rare EB-Musicman Stingray Classic in Raspberry Sorbet (Burgundy Mist) with flame maple neck / Rosewood fingerboard, white pickguard/pickup cover- ultra rare combo. One of only 25 made by Ernie Ball.

    9.9 out of 10 condition, due to a tiny ding in the neck, bass side on the rosewood (difficult to see). I have no idea how it got there. I am a former tech at Sadowsky, so I know how to set up basses and this one is set up to play wonderfully. I need to move it due to my humongous hands- I need a bass with 19mm+ spacing in order to play comfortably.

    The sound is pure Stingray- growl and bite that takes no prisoners! Back off on the treble and it is as smooth as glass.

    Priced to sell at $1650 w/ gig bag or interested in trading for an amber/natural Yamaha TRB JP2, Alembic Orion5/6, Roscoe LG3006, Sadowsky Metro 5 in the right color, or even a Yamaha TRB6 JP in Amber or Natural. Paypal or cash local sale.

    Rare opportunity to own a great bass that will go up in value. Thought long and hard about this...I need to move on to a bass that fits my hands.

    Very nice, if only it was a maple fingerboard.

    Alright y'all- price drop to $1600.00 plus shipping. Still interested in Alembic & Yamaha TRB6 JP series trades. Perhaps even the right (non-stained) Roscoe 6.

    This stingray has fabulous tone- reminiscent of the BOO bass era in every way!

    Great bass at a fair price. I have this same bass in a four string and it rocks. GLWS.

    My scale is a bit jumpy, but it looks to be about 9.3 to 9.8 pounds.
