1978 Musicman Stingray in very good condition. Sunburst finish over an Alder body with a Maple neck & fretboard. Equipped with a 2 band EQ, the much sought after black epoxy pre amp and through body stringing. The string mutes are still attached and the case appears to be original, if not its certainly period correct.

There are a few nicks and dings around the edges of the body and headstock and a little bit of finish wear on the back of the neck and on the fretboard itself. The neck is straight and plays smoothly. The frets are in good condition. The nut has been replaced. The serial number is:B008068. The body date is Nov 3rd 1978, the neck Nov 8th 1978. Two pot dates read 18th week of 78. The truss rod is fully working with plenty of room to move. The action is set nice and low. Nut Width: 42.15 mm. Depth at 1st fret: 20.2 mm.

This is an all round excellent bass, the sound is warm and punchy. It's been fully set up with a fresh set of strings and has a great action allowing for superb playability up and down the neck.
