Ok, somehow I ended up with a late 90's Stingray for $400 with the OHSC! The neck is straight, truss rod works, there is a bit fret wear and the finish is got a big ding near the controls and some cracks and the other thing is that the preamp seems to be shot, but it sounds pretty good in passive mode! Ok so here is my problem there are no repair shops where I live the only thing would be to drive an hour to Tucson to drop the bass at a repair shop and have them perform a good setup, but I really can't afford that right now, also I can't justify keeping the bass because I am not in a band or anything like that right now, and I don't even have an amp! The only thing I have is a korg headphone amp. I was thinking about sanding the body and refinish it in white, because I think the trans teal it's fugly and white looks hot with a maple fretboad, or may be listing the bass on craigslist and pass the deal to other person who would put the bass to good use?
