    If you can't put them in a store, I am more than willing to help. You can always put it in my house!

    Can't send a store anything that's been "used". These were not actually used by the artist they were made for, but if an instrument is either entered as a non-stock item or has been promo'd out it can't be sent to a store.

    You guys should sell them direct. Great way to move some product, make a little extra income and gives people a chance to own something special.

    Well, its that time again! I'm going with a theme this week: Natural. Either unfinished or at least finishes that accentuate the natural beauty of the wood that went into the construction of the instrument. This is a StingRay that Sterling has had for quite a few years now that really is quite a specimen. You'll notice that there are no holes drilled in for a pickguard at all.


    The neck on this thing is really something, as well. The bird's eye is just so prevalent on both sides of the neck.

    One thing I can't really convey through the pictures is that this bass actually has sort of a vintage-y polyurethane sort of finish on it, very different from what we normally do. Though I think that was standard on the Sabre reissue. In any case, hope you all enjoyed this week's installment!

    That grain is spectacular. Oozes class, bet that sounds killer. Some sound clips would be cool too.

    Bass looks great! Great idea to have sound clips posted of these beauties if possible.

    I've been considering that, once I have a more refined recording method I'd love to.

    I like it. My first love of Music Man basses has been the Bongo but I also really like the Stingrays too

    Is there something going on with the back of that Stingray or is it just a reflection? Hard to tell from the photo, I'm guessing it's a reflection. Either way, the grain on that body is awesome. Love seeing this stuff, thanks Casey!
