Stingrays with the 3 knob setup are just so awesome, much better than the 4 knob ones. Wish I could find one at a reasonable price.

Do you know of any for sale? PM me if you do :) I know of one, which prob most here have seen for sale on TM http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing ... 1034156526 . Pity that it has had a re-finish. I wonder who are the 'big names in NZ rock' who use to own that bass? Without a cert of authenticity these claims are worth nothing.

Would you be interested in a Steinberger Bass?

In all my years of playing, and my years in the music retail and wholesale business, including the NAMM show, I can honestly say the best playing and sounding bass I ever came across was a 3 knob early Stingray with black nylon tapewound strings. Unfortunately it was not for sale, but it was magic. I have had many 60s and later Fenders, Wal, Yamahas, Pedulla, Alembic and played Sadowskys, Ritters, Brubackers, even an F bass..... and this humble Ray burned all of them. I wonder where it is now.......

Made in USA

Original 1980's headless Steinberger bass guitar. Very good condition, really nice to play with great range of tones.

Oh yep, noticed that there on TM however i am not much of a fretless player. There is also a pre-EB MM on TM at the moment too. It seems a bit overpriced in comparison to what i have seen them go for on TM before.
