Hey Folks, I'm thinking that I like the thinner neck of a Sterling and am considering trading the Stingray for one. I bought this from GuitarCenter in Dallas in 2000 though I think that it is a 99 or 98 vintage. It's been gigged in a church band for about half of its life. I moved to upright bass for a couple of years then, oddly enough, to rhythm guitar. It is great playing shape and good cosmetic shape. There are three small dings in out of the way places (see pictures). Also, the color is "teal" which doesn't quite translate with flash photography. Check out the Ernie Ball site for a more acurate color representation. http://firstname.lastname@example.org/photostingray.html Let me know if you are interested and let the questions fly. Peace . . .
