PLAYER'S PERSPECTIVE

We're stoked to present this new StingRay Special HH bass from our friends over at Ernie Ball Music Man!

This one comes in a beautiful Buttercream. The roasted maple neck is very comfortable and satiny smooth with the gun oil finish, which makes for a comfortable feel and a fast ride all the way up and down. This is one of those instruments that's put together well enough to let you feel every little vibration of every note you play.

The electronics is easy to work with yet provides a wide variety of exceptional tones. This axe will make a killer companion on the road and in the studio. The preamp remains punchy and growly but they've actually tamed the top end down just a bit. Of course, you also have a treble EQ on the bass in case you want to add more sizzle back into your tone. This is a StingRay bass with a voice designed for today's music and the needs of today's musicians.

MANUFACTURER'S DESCRIPTION

First introduced in 1976, the StingRay has been revered as one of the most iconic bass guitars in history. The StingRay was the first production four string bass to feature onboard active equalization. The flagship of the Music Man line, today's StingRay retains the same signature features that it had some forty years ago, including a solid roadworthy construction, iconic oval pickguard, 3+1 tuning key configuration, and the ever-popular Music Man humbucker — all of which combine to produce a look, feel, and sound that is remarkably unmistakable.

5-BOLT SCULPTED NECK JOINT

The sculpted neck joint provides uninhibited access to all 22 stainless steel frets atop roasted maple necks.

REFINED BODY CONTOURS

Enhanced body contours are rounded for more comfort in any playing position while retaining that revered, iconic StingRay sound.

REVOICED. POWERFUL NEODYMIUM PICKUPS

The new and improved StingRay electronics feature powerful neodymium magnets, bringing you more output and a wider range of sounds

NEW 18-VOLT PREAMP

A newly designed 18-volt 3-Band preamp for extra clean headroom lets you dial in everything from modern punch to classic, vintage tones.

REBORN. LIGHTWEIGHT PERFORMANCE.

The overall reduction in weight is a much-welcomed feature of the new Stingray Special. Select body woods, improved contours, and lightweight hardware provide greater overall balance for extra comfort and a more enjoyable playing experience.
