    The StingRay armed with dual humbuckers and an improved neck.

    Few basses are as flat-out cool or have as much powerful tone as the famous StingRay. When it was introduced in 1976, it was the first bass to feature active electronics and advances such as a 6-bolt neck joint, contoured body, superior neck truss rod system, and rock-solid bridge to keep it ahead of the pack. Constructed with a select hardwood body, roasted maple neck, Schaller BM tuners, and 3-band active EQ, this version features dual Music Man humbucking pickups with 5-way switching for an even greater range of sound. Includes hardshell case.

    The roasted maple neck has several performance benefits from its thermally modified microstructure:
    Adds dimensional stability and resistance to temperature and humidity changes
    Increases resistance to warping
    Reduces density while maintaining stiffness for a lighter neck with sufficient strength
    Yields a microstructure similar to naturally aged woods with lower moisture content
    More resonance and less damping
    Eliminates the need for hazardous chemical treatments
    Vibrational testing indicates that roasted maple exhibits clearer tone with a stronger fundamental than untreated maple samples

    Features

    • 2 massive humbucking pickups with 5-way switching and 3-band active preamp
    • Select hardwood body
    • Roasted maple neck
    • Schaller BM tapered-post tuners

    The StingRay is the favorite of the funksters, and this version has dual humbuckers for more power and tonal range. Order today.
