1977Music Man Stingray I Walnut Finish

Grade: Very Good


This 1977 Music Man Stingray I is a beautiful and clean vintage guitar!

A fine snapshot of Leo Fender’s engineering circa 1977. The walnut color is gorgeous and somewhat rare to find, especially in this condition. Electronics are as new, unmodified and in perfect working order. Battery compartment is clean. I did my best to picture any cosmetic blemishes, which are few, but of course it is nearly impossible to capture light swirling that all guitars of this vintage all have. See pics for the 2 chips near the neck pocket ( quick fix with some touch up paint if it really bugs you)


Super cool electronics with boost dial and phaser switch to make all kinds of tone.

The guitar is fresh off of a refret at James Hood Guitars in Escondido, CA (cost was $600) and the finished product is impeccable! The new frets are medium jumbo stainless steel and play magnificently! If the mid 70’s are your jam, this guitar will not disappoint!


Vintage USA Guitar!


Will ship in a new Cahaya gig bag!

  • New
    Brand new, shipped from manufacturer directly to us. Please note: Each new guitar we receive is removed from the original packaging, photographed for our website, and then hung on the wall in our store. New guitars will include the original packaging, case candy, and any accessories included by the manufacturer.

    Technically new, because we get these items directly from the manufacturer, but with some sort of minor defect (a single scratch, dent, etc) that occurred during production. Usually B-stock items function perfectly, but have a cosmetic flaws that prevent the manufacturer from selling them to us as “new.”

    Pre-owned, but in museum-grade condition. Literally not a single scratch on it. The only thing that separates “mint” from “new” is the fact that at some point a customer bought it and took it home. Even if the customer bought it and stuck it in a closet without ever taking it out of the case, it’s still technically MINT, not new.

    Near Mint
    Only the smallest amount of wear. Maybe a tiny, barely noticeable “hairline” scratch on the back, or tarnish on the hardware.

    The most common condition grade in our shop. Used gently, very minor wear from normal use. A couple small scratches or dings, but fairly new-looking overall.

    Very Good
    A few more dings or scratches than a guitar in “excellent,” condition, but still very clean.

    A fair amount of dings, scrapes, scratches, and wear. Gig-played, toured with, well-used, almost beat up.

    Really beat up. Big scratches, big dings, gashes in the finish all the way down to the wood, missing non-essential parts, etc.

    Unplayable, in need of restoration, or to be sold as spare parts.
