    Our bass player is looking for a 2nd hand Musicman Stingray 5. There are a few for sale just above € 1.000,00.

    Besides the usual check on electronics, frets, neck, sound, paint etc. is there anything in particular about this bass when it is used? I mean, does it have a reputation for certain bad things?

    All help is wellcome.

    The only "thing" that I've ever heard about the MusicMan line is that they are GREAT! We've had a Sting Ray 4-string for years, absolutely flawless performance. No complaints. You just have to watch for the normal fret wear and neck relief. Very solid.
