Player's Perspective

Why should bass players get to have all of the fun? Now guitarists can play a StingRay too and it's a damn cool guitar! There are only 39 of these in the world so chances of you showing up at a gig and having the same guitar as someone else are extremely slim.

This Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay guitar is a modern take on the classic old Sabre guitars by Music Man. As with every guitar coming out of Music Man's factory, here in California, the build quality and craftsmanship of this beauty are off the charts. But you can feel that there's something extra special about the BFR instruments. The level of refinement is second to none.

A simple control layout mixed with powerful pickups and carefully chosen tonewoods make this axe the total package. The pickups have a vintage vibe to them, but they are definitely a bit more overwound than vintage pickups. This means you can achieve warm, clear, and crisp clean tones while also maintaining definition and articulation when you start to saturate and distort the tone.

Unique to this BFR version is the white smoke finish, bound neck, block inlays, and that gorgeously flamed and roasted maple neck. The color combo is also something you can't get and it definitely balances between classic and modern beautifully.
