Stingray SR4 Body
The SR4 body features the smooth, slender curves that makes the Stingray such a joy to perform with. The gently bevelled edges allow the body to rest snugly against yours during performances, whilst the tapered lower bout creates the perfect resting position for the picking/fingering hand. The body is built using select hardwood, delivering a balanced combination of strength and comfortability, the reassuringly sturdy feel being reinforced by a lightweight playability.
Married to the body is a select maple neck, which is fitted using Music Man's customary 6-bolt neck joint for perfect alignment with no shifting. This method also optimises tone transfer and sustain, so that each and every note can ring out truly with the utmost clarity and articulation. The deep double-cutaway body profile guarantees that every part of the neck is readily accessible. The neck has been treated to a gunstock-oil and hand-waxed finish to guarantee as smooth and fast a playing feel as one could hope for. Paired with the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 21 high-profile and wide frets that are adorned with dot position inlays.
To capture all of the qualities that give the Stingray 2EQ its sound, there is a single Music Man humbucker with Alnico magnets and huge pole-pieces that are connected to the classic 2-band EQ controlling bass and treble. This EQ system has been with Stingray basses from the very start, and assists in releasing the full potential of this delightful set-up. In order to prevent unwanted noise or interference from affecting your signal, the body cavity is coated with graphite acrylic resin, which is then shielded by a chrome-plated brass control cover.
The headstock is equipped with Music Man's 3 + 1 layout of Schaller BM tuning machines with tapered string posts, carrying out the task of upholding tuning integrity dutifully. On the way down, the strings pass the 41.3mm wide nut which is compensated (for better intonation), past the easy access truss-rod adjuster to the chrome plated steel bridge. The hardened steel bridge plate is accompanied by stainless steel bridge saddles, which create a seamless connection between the strings and body for maximum stability.
The Music Man Stingray SR4 2EQ Electric Bass Guitar is completed in Candy Red, whilst finish and chrome hardware give the 2EQ a classic look that will stand the test of time and when you're not playing it, you can store it in the supplied gig bag.
