This is an exceptionally rare 1977 Inca Silver Music Man Stingray with Original finish. Not only is the finish the original Inca Silver the Silver has barely started turning green. Not only that but the bass weighs 9 pounds and 10 ounces which is exceptional. Finally this has the rare and desirable Long Pole Pickups along with a 1977 epoxy preamp, a Thunder Pocket and a string through body. It is going to be really hard to find a cooler Stingray Bass than this.
This has the original Inca Silver Finish and I have a picture that shows the finish wore through to black. That is a very good sign because on the earliest of Inca Silver Stingrays Music Man was finishing over bodies that had a black finish. Maybe they believed that would help the Inca look better but whatever the case may be that little bit of black supports that this is original. The neck is maple and this has the TM on the logo on the headstock which is only found on the early Stingrays. The TM changed to R in mid 1977.
This bass also has John Holmes Long Pole Pickups and a Thunder Pocket. The poles on the early Stingray Basses extended into a routed cavity in the body that I call the Thunder Pocket. These features are always on the earliest Stingrays and are regarded to produce the best tone. The bass also has all original electronics including an epoxy preamp.
The bridge is a String Through Body which was standard at this time. The bass is all original and weighs 9 pounds 10 ounces. This is phenomenal that the finish has maintained such a beautiful silver and hasn’t greened more. The bass is one of the coolest Stingray Basses I have ever seen and less then 200 Inca Silver Stingrays were made. This also includes an original case.
The bass is in good condition, probably an 8.5/10. The most serious wear is a large scratch right across the back of the body. There is also some other wear in the finish like nicks and smaller scratches and some finish worn off from a forearm. There also is a chunk of finish that is missing to the right of the neck pocket on the front of the body. The finish has checking as well. The first several frets show some wear but not much after the 5th fret and basically nothing after the 7th. The bass is a played bass but it’s still in very good shape and great playing condition. Finally I took the bass apart and buffed all of the metal to a really nice shine so this is really glowing with the Inca. I want to really emphasize how incredible it is that the finish is as silver as it is. These usually turn green which just kills the experience. This bass is COOL.
Basses like this never come up for sale and this has the tone and is set up to play like butter. I have had this in my personal collection for a long time and wanted to offer it for sale for someone that knows just how special this bass is.
