Another crazy priced bass. Only about 3 times what they usually sell for.

either the bridge or the pickups are out of alignment, look at the angle of the strings from the bridge base to the saddles lol

There is actually a slot lower down in the tailpiece, that the strings are supposed to go through, that gives it a sharper angle over the saddle and puts them in line. Hard to describe though.

What's the thoughts on this?

I've been thinking about getting a Stingray but I don't know if I really care enough about it being "vintage" to pay the extra $$. Still I think this price is fairly reasonable for what it is....

I just sold a 4HH for 1600 and it was a lovely bass. Dunno how it compares in playability and sound to that though.

That particular ray has been there for a while though and gets listed at different prices. Pretty sure it’s been 2800, 3500, 4000...

Yeah, I saw it at $2800 a month or so ago, then at $4000. I think the seller might be trying to do the thing where you inflate the price for a while then someone thinks it's a super bargain at the original price.

I was thinking I could probably pick up a decent Ray for $1500-$1600. I'm after a natural, single H with maple board. I'm in no hurry anyway (gotta sell some unused stuff first) but thought this ticks all the boxes but price is a little more than I want to spend (even if it is worth it)

I'd like to see some more pictures to confirm that really was a 40-year-old bass.
