    Found a guy selling one...it looks legit to me EXCEPT I am having trouble comparing it to other 6 string stingrays because I can't find any online. Does ernie ball music man have such a model? Thanks.

    I don't think they ever made a 6-string Stingray bass.

    Only 6-string Stingray I know of is this :)

    This guy says it was custom made. Not sure if that's plausible. Is there anything I can look for to verify that?

    They make the Bongo as a 4-5-6 string, but not the Stingray.

    Custom made by who? EB?... email and ask them if they made it.

    I believe a few have asked and Sterling's crew gave them an F no. The funny thing is that the hardcore EB fans seem to hate the idea of guitarists or bassists wanting custom gear. Seriously, they will trash you if you suggest a 6 string Stingray bass on their forum.

    If it exists and is real it was probably made for an artist at some point. They do custom things for artists that they will never do for regular folk.

    Thanks guys. I got in touch with Music Man (whose response was speedy, detailed and friendly btw) and they confirmed that this isn't one of theirs. Looks like I avoided making an expensive mistake.
