I'm guessing this is a mistake, these normally go for more than twice this much. I would be suspicious if the seller weren't rated highly. Maybe they were thinking of a SUB when they priced it?

There seems to be confusion between SUBs, Ray34, Ray24 (?) - I don't think this is a Ray34 based on a quick search.

If you zoom in on the headstock you can just make out “sub series” underneath “Sterling “. Certainly a different logo to what you see on most Subs....Come on Musicman, quit calling models and ranges by the same name....my brain hurts.

Wow, I didn't realize that's what was under the "Sterling" logo. I tried resizing the image with an editor and I still just see blobs, only bigger. :)

I didn't realize there was a headstock design like this for the SUB series. I have only ever seen the giant "SUB" logo up until now.

So I think I’ve spent way to much time digging, but the more I look, the fishier this gets. I cannot find any other example of this logo combination. I can’t think why they would put “Stingray” on the headstock, along with Sterling by Musicman, as opposed to “Ray34” ....

... so I found a similar righty at GC today.... hanging on the wall next to SUBs with the regular logo.... very odd, but it’s legit.... the righty model was cheaper, as you can see...
