The serial he gave me-
34004
places it about Dec 1991/Jan 1992 on Gav's site.

*EDIT*
Added info-
Serial is on the bridge.
Six bolt neck.

Anyone care to add any info on this one for me?
Original color/Refin?
Etc.?

Bottom line-
Without playing it,
think it's worth around the $800 he's asking?

Hard to tell from that photo if the finish is original. I'd have thought it to be original if it's a transparent red (ie. with the grain visible). If it's a solid red I'm not certain.

Looks ok to me. I had a 1991 SR4 for many years, one of the best MMs I ever had. $800 seems quite good if the condition is right and it's what you want. I haven't seen mute bridge Stingrays for less $$ than that.

No, can't tell if the grain shows or not from these pics.

I paid $825 for mine.
Seems about right...

Might try a low ball and see if he bites.

Hard to say if a refin or not. I'm sure I can see wood grain. If that's the case, then it would be a Trans Red. Back then, TR was a wine colour (as depicted) and used Alder for the body wood. Todays the TRs are much brighter and use Ash bodies.

To be on the safe side, you can get the exact date and colour records for 34004 by emailing Ernie Ball's customer service.
