Since the mid 1970's, Music Man have created some of the most interesting and forward thinking electric guitars, basses and amplifiers on the market. Originally started by Tom Whittaker & Forrest White of Fender fame, and later including Leo Fender himself, Music Man has catered to the ever changing needs of guitar players across a range of genres for over 40 years. This 1984 Music Man Stingray Bass would have been one of the last run of instruments produced while Leo Fender was still involved with the company. Loosely based around the style of a Precision Bass, this Stingray features a more ergonomically contoured Alder body with a Maple neck. The body is fitted with the typical Music Man humbucker pickup, along with an active pre amp circuit that gives the Stingray its signature punchy sound. The bridge also features the later top loading string design, as opposed to string-through body. This guitar is in good condition and has had some repairs to keep it playing as it should. Our luthiers have undertaken a repair to truss rod at the first fret which has left the truss rod functioning as it should be. There is also plenty of lacquer checking across the front and back of the body and back of the neck, as can be seen in the pictures.
This guitar has been given a full service and appraisal by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
