    Well, I've finally got one. After pining for the best part of a decade I've finally got my hands on a Music Man Stingray 5. It dates to around 1998-99 and has a piezo bridge which blends in to give a really nice warm characteristic. In addition it also has a birdseye maple neck and black pearloid pickguard which I was unsure when I saw the images on Ebay but looks stunning in the flesh and really compliments the bass. Strings are fairly dull at the moment but should be restringing and setting up tomorrow, but less talking more pics!

    That's a beauty. I've always had a thing with Music Man. They may be expensive, but they deliver.

    I've lusted after a MM since borrowing a mate's at a jam.

    Maybe I should sell a couple of guitars and pick one up. Hmmmmm!

    I didn't know there was an Iron Maiden beer. Did a search and it seems to be out of stock in my country. Dang, seems I missed the boat on that one!

    Sorry, I was distracted by the posters on your wall. Nice bass too!

    Thanks guys, having had a few months with her now I can say that the hype surrounding Musicman is true, also Trooper is a very tasty beer. :lol:
