The Sterling by Music Man StingRay5 Ray35 Electric Bass Guitar in Black is designed to be as close to a Music Man StingRay bass as you can get without breaking the bank. Originally pioneered in 1976, the StingRay bass was incredibly innovative for its time, being the first bass to feature active electronics and an individual look with its '4+1' headstock, although visually similar to other basses of the time the StingRay fast became the first choice for pro musicians due to its fantastic build quality, incredible playability and distinctive looks.
Modern Contoured Body
The StingRay5 Ray35 features a Mahogany solid body, contoured to fit snugly against your body to ensure a comfortable playing experience whether sitting or standing. Mahogany has a warm and soft character with a mellow high end, making it perfect for operating in the low end. Famous for its sustain, you'll find your notes go on forever, reacting with the punch and trademark Mahogany growl.
Roasted Hard Maple Neck
The Roasted Hard Maple Neck does the combined job of looking stunning as well as offering slick playability. The Neck feels slim enough to let rip on but hefty enough to offer a stable playing platform. With a 22 fret Rosewood Fretboard you get a smooth playing experience that feels satisfying under your fingers whilst the White Dot Inlays ensure you never lose your way, even on the most adventurous of scale runs.
The StingRay5 Ray35 features the trademark Music Man active electronics to ensure a responsive and well-defined sound. Despite only having the single H-1 AlNiCo Humbucker there's a wealth of tonal options available to you with this bass. The 3-band Active Preamp gives you options to control your bass, mids and treble bands, with a 3-way switch letting you dial in everything from sub depth rumble to a clear and cutting bass sound, ensuring you're armed for any situation.
The StingRay5 Ray35 features the iconic '4+1' Music Man headstock with Open Gear Tuning Machines that ensure solid and steady tuning stability with easy adjustments. The Sterling by Music Man designed bridge offers excellent intonation and works in conjunction with the tuners to give you a strong and stable platform no matter how hard you pop, slap or tap.
Inheriting many of the characteristics of it's much more expensive cousin, the Sterling by Music Man StingRay5 Ray35 Electric Bass Guitar in Black is an awe-inspiring piece of kit that embodies all the spirit of the Music Man StingRay Bass Guitar at a fantastic price point.
