The Stingray bass has a long and storied history, with players ranging from Tim Comerford (Rage Against the Machine) to Louis Johnson (Michael Jackson Thriller album) it's no surprise that generations have taken up the Stingray mantle. Its versatility through the clever inclusion of a 2-band pre-amp has set the Stingray apart from its competitors.
Under the Bridge
The Basswood body provides the sturdy foundation for the whole Ray4 tone and the six screw bolt-on on neck maintains an excellent sustain for long smooth bass sounds. The neck is made from hard Maple with a Maple or Jatoba-fingerboard depending on which colour bass you choose. This tough material will not only last but evolve with your playing.
Fistful of Steel
The Ray4 is fitted with a classic fixed bridge which is both elegant and strong. The open gear machine heads provide a high level of tuning accuracy and stability. The ceramic humbucker is passive but married to the active 2 band EQ powered by an internal 9-volt battery the options to boost the output and shape the tone are there.
Wanna' Be Startin' somethin'
The Ray4 is finished in a variety of colours and has the classic teardrop pickguard in Black or white depending on which colour bass you choose. With bass luminaries such as Flea, John Deacon or Cliff Williams you know you are in good company and playing a versatile tone monster. The Ray4 has a musical heritage that belies its tiny price tag and well worth the investment.
