⚌Reduced‼ Gibson S1 Solidbody Maple Natural, 1978

Here we’re looking at a Gibson S1 built in Nashville TN, with a date of April 19 1978. This guitar is built exclusively of Maple, used for the three-piece body, three-piece neck, and fingerboard. This example is in largely original condition, except for the bridge pickup. Some time ago, the original single coil was removed, put in the case, and replaced with what looks like a Duncan Hot Rails.

No Longer Available‼  MusicMan Stingray 4 Bass Black, 1978

Here’s a rarity and bit of history – a MusicMan Stingray 4 Bass, built during 1978 in Fullerton, California by CLF Research for MusicMan. CLF stood for Clarence Leo Fender. MusicMan was founded in 1974 and in 1975, Leo Fender’s non-compete agreement lapsed and he became president of Music Man. Until 1979, MusicMan guitars and basses were built by Leo’s other company, CLF Research. After 1979 and until Music Man folded in 1984, Grover Jackson built the bodies and necks and assembled the instruments.

❌SOLD❌  Music Man Sterling 4 HS Bass Natural, 2006

The Ernie Ball Music Man Sterling 4 was introduced in 1993 with a single pickup, Ash body, and Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard. In 2005, a second neck pickup became available. Music Man was founded in 1972 by Leo Fender, Forrest White and Tom Walker, originally named Tri-Sonix, then MusiTek and in 1974 became Music Man. Leo Fender was still bound by a 1965 non-competition agreement with CBS, so until 1975 he was a silent partner though he left the company in 1979.

❌SOLD❌ Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 5 Bass Honeyburst, 2004

Introduced in 1987, the Stingray 5 bass was the first new bass offered following Ernie Ball’s purchase of Music Man, and has consistently had a solid following. This model is based on the Music Man Stingray bass introduced in 1976 and partly designed by Leo Fender, with input from Sterling Ball. When first introduced, it was quickly adopted by players like Tony Levin and others who frequently needed lower C or B notes, but without sacrificing the tone of higher pitches.
