Decided to sell my USA made Musicman SUB bass as I'm not really playing bass at present.
This is one of the early noughties models which were proper USA built guitars before the cheaper Far East Sub range was introduced. Basically these models had a few cost saving features - no body contouring, chequerplate scratchplate, non-lacquered textured finish etc.
So you get the iconic Musicman styling plus USA build quality and prestige, but without the full fat price tag.
However, with this bass you also get a little bit extra... It's been significantly modified to take it even closer to the full fat US models.
The guitar body has been refinished and lacquered - so no rough textures surface. The scratchplate has been replaced with one more reminiscent of the normal US models. The neck has been lacquered to give a smooth finish. It also had an £80 pro set up last September so plays perfectly/
So, you get a fully fettled and sorted US Musicman with some quality mods to get it closer to the iconic Stingray.
Thanks to all the work that's been done on this bass, it's in virtually mint condition apart from a few tiny marks here and there. There are really just 2 things to note:
1) where the neck has been re-finished / lacquered you can feel a feint line along the edge of the fingerboard where the lacquered edge meets the non-lacquered f'board
