Music Man / Stingray / 1978 / Natural / Bass
1978 Music Man Stingray in very good condition. Natural finish, black pickguard, maple neck & fretboard. Equipped with a 2 band EQ, epoxy coated preamp and through-body stringing. Aside from what I suspect is a refret and replaced mute sponge it's all original. Non original hard case. It comes with 3-months warranty and a 7-day returns policy.
The front face of the body is in excellent condition overall with just a small area of arm wear on the front edge. The back has a patch of buckle rash on the edge of the upper bout and. The back of the neck is very clean. The headstock is fairly clean with only a few very minor scuffs. The neck is straight and plays smoothly. The frets have minimal wear and have been cleaned and polished in our workshop. The electronics work perfectly and all hardware is in excellent condition. The truss rod works correctly without issue. This is an all-round excellent bass.
It's been fully set up in our workshop with a fresh set of Ernie Ball round-wound strings and has a great action allowing for superb playability up and down the neck. The serial number is B003057. Weight: 11lbs 6oz. The neck is date stamped 29th Dec 1976, the body Feb 14th 1978. The pots date to late 76. The truss rod works as intended with plenty of room to move. Nut Width: 43.2 mm. Depth at 1st fret 20.7 mm.
