    Holiday Greetings!

    Here we have an incredible Vintage Pre-Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray bass from 1981 Serial #B022975. This bass is the real deal, and it has been tastefully modified with a Bartolini P pickup for added thump, warmth, and versatility, and Schaller Straplocks!

    Controls are:
    Master Volume
    3-way pickup select
    Treble
    Bass
    Series/Parallel switch, just for the Humbucker!

    This bass is a tone monster. Do you need to thump for some motown sound? just rock the P pickup, do you need that Teena Marie, Flea thumb action? rock the Humbucker. do you need something extra special for the middle? Rock them both!

    The pictures will show the truth, and everything is professionally done. Truss rod turns easily, and frets are still kicking; For a 30 year old bass, it's in great condition, and priced to move.

    $1375 shipped in a hard case is a steal as these vintage Ray's don't pop up often.

    Unusual pickup combo, made even before Lakland was of this world I would guess. Pre-EB sound and quality with the top load config makes this quite attractive. Good luck with the sale.
