1977 Musicman Stingray. Sunburst finish over a nicely figured Ash body with a Maple neck & fretboard. Equipped with a 2 band EQ and through body stringing. It comes supplied in the original case with MM logo. The case has had some repair work done as it was cracked. One pot dates to 77, the two other pots date to 78 and the pre amp is not the Black Epoxy type but the later non epoxy type that appeared late 78/ early 79. It is my view that the 77 pot is original to the bass but clearly the two 78 pots and the pre amp are replaced. It has had a re-fret.

This is an all round excellent bass, the sound is warm and punchy. The neck is straight and plays smoothly. The finish has lacquer checking and a few scuffs around the edges. There are a few patches that have been touched up but overall its in good condition. The truss rod is fully working with plenty of room to move. The action is set nice and low.

The serial number is :B002196. Weight: 11lbs 2oz. The body date is Jan 1977, the neck Feb 1977. It's been fully set up by my technician with a low action allowing for superb playability up and down the neck. Nut Width: 1.684" / depth:0.799". Width at 12th: 2.217" / depth: 0.980"
