46 years ago, when I saw John Deacon and Thomas Hamilton playing the Stingray Bass, I became a music man.
Recently, I've finally been able to collect Music Man products from around this time, and I'm particular about collecting products from 1977.
1977 112 Sixty-Five 2275-65 (BN07491),
1977 HD130 2100-130(xxxxxxx),
1977 Stingray Bass (B005256),
1977 Stingray II Guitar (G003293)
I haven't gotten a cabinet for my bass yet and am playing it with an Ernie Ball HD210 Audiophile.
