    Summer sale time!

    Up for sale are a couple of axes that need new homes. The barn is a little too full, and I've got my eye on a new toy....

    No trades and Lower 48 only, please. I have links to more pix if you need them.

    First up, a 1995 Ernie Ball Musicman StingRay. This one is in great shape. Just a few bumps and a very slight bend to one of the tuners. Comes with the case pictured. Asking $825 + shipping.

    Next, this Ray has gorgeous grain in the neck and body, and maybe the lightest Ray I've ever owned. The color is slightly greener than these pix. Comes with a EBMM tolex case. She's got a few more miles than the one above, but given how pretty she is, and the weight, and the case, she's worth a little extra! Asking $875 + shipping, will consider offers.


    Last is a GandL L-2000. This one is an 85 body and an 89 neck. It might have been an original. A few pick scratches and some bumps, but overall a great sounding axe in very good shape. Looking to get $725 + shipping for this one. Comes in the correct G&L tolex case, too. 9ae80df3.

    I should add that everything ships in a brand new ULINE box with plenty of packing materials inside the case and out. The prices I will give you for shipping include full insurance.

    What's the FB radius on the Rays? They are both gorgeous! Also, what year is the teal one?

    Some interest and some questions: Any idea of the weight of the 1995 natural/maple fb one? How bad is the tuner bent? What's the condition of the truss rod and neck? Ceramic or Alnico pickup? I can't tell from the pic, but is the truss rod adjuster a wheel or a nut? Any more/better pics?

    I don't know the radius, but I can measure it Monday night. I thought they were all the same from those years....:confused: The teal one is a 95-ish, I think? Never took the neck off to check....

    Al, I sent you a couple of PMs.

    Got 'em and thanks. Decisions, decisions, decisions. :D

    RE: Ceramic / Alnico pups... I've since found out that all 4 strings are alnico. 5 strings in the mid 2000's were switched to ceramic magnets, but have since gone back to alnico. Alnico supposedly "sounds better". I think the poles on the ceramic pups are less shiny and possibly darker. Don't quote me on any of this cause I could be wrong. :meh:

    Pix of the Blue/green Ray. This is the worst of the dings. Oddly enough, the worst is at the headstock...

    Great basses at great prices and still no sale. Plus Duke is as upstanding a guy to deal with as you'll find anywhere. What's going on here?

    Thank you, for your offers, Reolin, but I will not be shipping this to Russsia. And, as for your offer to ship to a US address, I will also decline. You have zero feedback and, in fact, joined TB about 3 days ago. That is a risk I do not wish to take.

    Again, thank you for the offers.

    To reiterate: US buyers only, please.

    I've been read only for a long time (I am a guitar player actually)
    BTW, I have an ebay account with 100% feedback, but who cares.

    Anyway, no problem, good luck to you.
