Overview

Classic StingRay sound and style with a single neodymium humbucker.

The Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Special H electric bass brings together groundbreaking innovation with timeless design. First introduced in 1976, the StingRay was the first production 4-string bass to have onboard active EQ, letting you shape your tone like never before. Today's StingRay Special H retains the signature features that made it an icon—the oval pickguard, 3+1 tuning keys and the growling Music Man humbucker pickup. Combined, they produce a look, feel and sound that is remarkably unmistakable.

Roasted Maple Neck and Custom Components Enhance Playability

The roasted maple neck and fingerboard resist warping while enhancing sustain and stability. Combined with custom Music Man machine heads, bridge and saddle, they tailor the feel for comfort and optimal tone. The StingRay Special H helps you play your very best anywhere, anytime.

Onboard Active EQ Gives You Unprecedented Tonal Control

The StingRay's onboard active EQ was revolutionary when it debuted and remains pioneering today. Dial in everything from round, thumpy lows to bright, biting highs with the bass and treble controls. The preamp also delivers plenty of power for the biggest stages. The Special H packs that coveted vintage StingRay vibe into a sleek, updated design.

The Music Man Humbucker Produces a Signature Growl

The muscular, throaty voice of the Music Man humbucker helps define the StingRay Special H's iconic tone. With a beefy midrange and articulate growl, it cuts through any mix with ease. The pickup's punchy character has satisfied bassists across genres, from rock to funk. For a distinctive look and sound, the StingRay Special H is hard to top.

Roadworthy Construction Built to Handle Life on the Road

Under the stylish exterior lies a solid, road-ready build meant for touring. The hardwood body, roasted maple neck and steel bridge plate form an incredibly stable foundation. Stainless steel frets provide years of smooth playability without replacement. For bassists always traveling, the StingRay Special H delivers night after night.

  • Select hardwood body with a high-gloss polyester finish
  • Bolt-on select roasted maple neck
