So 2 days ago I bought a Music Man Stingray 5 from a guy on craigslist for $800. I had to pick this bass up from a storage facility in Queens. (NYC). Now I go home and really look over the bass. This thing was brand new. Not a scratch on the entire thing. Now I took it to have it set up and the guy told me it was a little dry on the neck because the frets were rough on the edge. So I go home and look up the serial number and find out it's from 1996. It must have been in storage for almost 17 years because it looks like i went and got it at guitar center. It's crazy. Does anyone out there have any stories like this?
