2000 Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray EX, black. Made in Japan, serial number E04545. This bass is all original and comes with the original Music Man gigbag (missing the shoulder straps). The EX series was only made for a few years, this is how Ernie Ball's Distributor Kanda Shokai presented them at the time in their catalog: "The Stingray EX is a Japanese-made Stingray model produced using the same parts as the USA model at a domestic workshop designated by Ernie Ball Music Man". It shows a lot of wear, has one bigger touched up ding on the side of the body, but it's in perfect structural shape with great frets. Weighs only 3.75kg!
