Overview

An affordable bass with the iconic StingRay design and flexible tone.

The Sterling by Music Man S.U.B. StingRay bass brings you the iconic body shape and versatile sound of Music Man's legendary StingRay bass at an accessible price. This sleek electric bass guitar gives you that unmistakable StingRay silhouette with its signature teardrop pickguard and classically contoured edges. Its active 2-band preamp lets you shape your tone with volume, bass and treble controls, while the humbucking pickup provides fat, punchy tone perfect for any genre. The fully adjustable bridge grants complete control over action and intonation for ideal playability. Combined with its fast maple neck and fingerboard, the S.U.B. StingRay bass offers the articulate, bright tone that made the StingRay a favorite of bassists worldwide.

Dial In Your Tone With Active 2-Band EQ

The S.U.B. StingRay bass comes equipped with an active 2-band preamp, giving you versatile tone-sculpting control right at your fingertips. The volume knob adjusts overall output, while dedicated bass and treble knobs let you cut or boost lows and highs to suit your needs. Roll off the highs a bit for a smoother, vintage vibe or turn up the treble for more bite and definition. The active preamp requires a 9V battery, providing boosted output and noise-free operation. Whether you want a deep, thundering rumble or a percussive snap, this preamp lets you quickly shape your sound.

Adjustable Bridge Provides Ideal Playability

The S.U.B. StingRay bass comes equipped with a fully adjustable bridge, giving you complete control over string action and intonation. The bridge saddles are individually adjustable for fine-tuning each string's height to your preferred playing feel. Intonation is also adjustable so you can perfectly set the harmonics across the neck. Combined with the 34" scale fast maple neck and fingerboard, the adjustable bridge makes this bass incredibly comfortable and easy to play, reducing fatigue over long practice sessions or gigs. It also stays in tune, providing rock-solid stability.

Fat, Versatile Tones From the Humbucking Pickup

This S.U.B. StingRay bass utilizes a single Music Man humbucking pickup that produces full, punchy tone perfect for any musical genre. The two-coil design virtually eliminates hum and noise compared to single-coil pickups, giving you focused bass tone even at high gain settings. With its wider tonal range, the pickup easily handles fat, thundering low end as well as crisp highs with a biting growl when you dig in. The pickup is positioned close to the maple fingerboard for outstanding note articulation and plenty of harmonic content. From smooth, round warmth to aggressive bite, this pickup dishes up the authentic StingRay sound.

Lightweight Comfort Meets Iconic Style

The S.U.B. StingRay bass gives you the iconic body shape and head-turning looks of Music Man's legendary StingRay bass in a lightweight, comfortable package. The contoured basswood body with forearm and chest carves makes this bass feel like a natural extension of your body. The iconic 4+1 tuner configuration and pickguard provide an unmistakable silhouette on stage. Available in a variety of eye-catching finishes, this bass offers the StingRay style while reducing fatigue over long performances. With authentic sound, killer looks and incredible playability, the S.U.B. StingRay is an amazing value.
