Solidbody Electric Bass With Roasted Maple Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard and Alnico Humbucker

Since it first hit the market in the ’70s, the Music Man StingRay has always been a bass player’s bass. It's been heard on countless classic recordings in all genres. With the Sterling by Music Man StingRay Ray34, you can take home the same historic style and sound at a more practical price. Musician’s Friend customers love the modern contoured body because it comfortably fits your own for hours of easy play. A roasted maple neck and rosewood fingerboard add a touch of upscale class to the instrument; a 3-band active preamp lets you sculpt the alnico humbucker to fit into any mix. The bridge borrows the same design and roadworthy reliability of the legendary Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay, and with easy-to-reach paddle tuners, you'll always be able to keep that A string thumping at 440. Add the poplar burl top with a transparent pickguard and you’ve got an exotic-looking bass that’s sure to stand out in any collection. Put a Ray34 in your hands, and you'll be one happy player.

Iconic StingRay Sound

Sterling by Music Man puts the iconic sound of the StingRay at your fingertips with the Ray34. It’s loaded with a Sterling by Music Man-designed alnico humbucker pickup and 3-band active preamp, so you get that signature big, bold sound with all the tonal versatility you could ask for. Whether you’re a new bass player or a skilled musician who favors rock or funk, the Sterling by Music Man StingRay Ray34 does not disappoint.

Super Smooth Playing Experience

Another great thing about the StingRay Ray34 is its neck. Every great bass has to have a great neck, and this one will keep you playing for hours. This StingRay features a roasted maple neck with a 21-fret rosewood fingerboard for an ultra-smooth playing experience. With its 6-bolt attachment like the Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay, this bolt-on neck on the Ray34 gives you more stability than most set-neck basses.

Classic StingRay Design

Pick up the Sterling by Music Man StingRay Ray34 and we guarantee you won’t ever want to put it down. It’s got all the classic looks we love of the original StingRay, but designed for today’s player. The modern contouring makes it hip-friendly, and a comfortable bass that’s ready to play for any musical situation. The poplar burl top gives it an all-new exotic look.

An Essential Addition to Your Collection

The Sterling by Music Man StingRay has long been trusted by players as the essential bass. The StingRay Ray34 maintains its classic look and legendary tone, but with modern upgrades and a contemporary feel. Its massive hardened steel bridge enhances sustain, and its rock-solid construction makes it ready to go wherever you want. If your collection feels like its missing something, it’s probably a StingRay. We think it’s a must for any bassist’s collection. The StingRay Ray34 includes deluxe gig bag.
