    What's the best price that you guys have seen for a Stingray-5. I'm not really thinking of buying one right now, but if an incredible deal that was the right color combination and condition came along, I'd get one. I used to have a 4-string stingray and I sold mine for $900. I think I could get a Stingray-5 Used for less than that, but I'm not quite sure. I just miss having a bright punchy bass like a stingray. Let me know the best prices that you have ever seen a 5-string stingray go for.
     
  2. I've seen SR5s for $750. You just have to look hard.

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    I've seen them as low as $800. I'd have pulled the trigger on that but it wasn't the finish/neck wood I was looking for.

    I bought both my 'ray5-s ('91 fretless, '94 rosewood natural fretted) for about $1,250 used, but a friend of mine bought his for $750 used (must be early nineties, has a batt. cavity with screws)

    Will be hard to find 'em at that price though.

  5. I got a year-old mint condition SR5 for $800 last winter. A very good price.:bassist:

    I bought one about a year or two ago locally for $525 and sold it for $875 plus shipping. That was pretty cool.

    I just sold mine for $750.
     
  8. If you can find one for $750, jump on it! Up to $850 is a good deal.
