Just to fuel the fire, here's mine:
I bought it new, and I'm happy to say that it was well worth the price tag. I have no regrets.
I also have a MIM P-Bass, and after a couple hours on the P, switching to the Stingray feels like stepping out of a Toyota and into a Porche. I've never actually driven a Porche, but I think you know what I mean. The Stingray just plays itself. The neck feels amazing and the 5-way switch with 3-band EQ gets me more sounds than I know what to do with.
Bottom line, I say save up for the real deal.
