The Sterling by Music Man S.U.B. Ray 4 electric bass guitar combines vintage charm with modern sensibility to create a truly awesome model. Borrowing from its cousin, the Music Man StringRay 4 bass, is built to a very high standard of quality, and is at home in the studio, on the stage, wherever and whenever you're good to go.
The S.U.B. Ray 4 is designed and built to take anything that comes its way, giving you the confidence to rock out as you please. The body is crafted using solid basswood, a lightweight tonewood that produces a delightfully balanced timbre - making it exceptionally versatile. In order to ensure comfortability, the body has been carefully shaped to guarantee a figure-hugging feel, with a tapered lower bout to accommodate the picking arm during performances.
6-Bolt Neck Joint
Backing up the body's impressive strength, is a solid and reliable maple neck, which has been fitted using a 6-bolt neck joint, designed by Music Man. The joint creates a robust connection with the body, which guarantees strength, stability and sublime tone transfer. However hard you rock out, you can rest assured that the sturdy maple neck will remain firmly in position.
As well as making it tough, the neck has been treated to a satin finish to ensure the smoothest possible playing feel one could imagine. Not matter how energetic your performance may get, the back of the neck stays free from stickiness or tackiness. Appreciating that we all have different playing needs and requirements, the team at Music Man have made it very easy to adjust the neck. At the base of the rosewood fingerboard is a thumbwheel, which can be attenuated to suit your playing needs.
The rosewood fingerboard is home to 21-frets, which are adorned with dot position inlays to guide your way in style. The fingerboard radius is shaped to 12-inches, perfect for executing smooth string bends and fast licks.
The S.U.B. Ray 4 electric bass guitar is equipped with a single high output humbucking pickup. Do not be fooled by this simple set-up, as the combination of select tonewoods and Music Man's expertise in electronics, guarantees an enviable tonal palette with which to play with.
The active 2-band EQ has individual bass and treble controls, which allows you to shape and control the pickups output with deft precision. The master volume knob allows you to smoothly attenuate the output, but no matter what level you choose, the richness of the tone is ever present.
The headstock is home to tough open-gear tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision throughout each and every performance. Fitted to the body is a fixed bridge, creating the perfect anchor point for each string to ensure intonation and sustain is maintained dutifully. The chrome finish adds a stylish touch, as well as contributing to the reliability of the bass.
If you’re looking for a bass that excels in the studio and on the stage, and demand affordability without sacrificing on quality, then the Sterling by Music Man S.U.B. Ray 4 electric bass guitar is the perfect choice.
