The Sterling by Music Man S.U.B. Ray 4 electric bass guitar in black is an outstanding model that boasts a range of incredible specs, and comes at a highly affordable price. Taking its lead from the Music Man StringRay 4 bass, this S.U.B. Ray 4 has the looks, the feel, and the tone that guarantees you'll steal the show.
The S.U.B. Ray 4 is built like a tank, and can take anything you can throw at it - perfect for the gigging bassist who demands consistency and durability. The body is made using solid basswood, which produces tones with depth and warmth, whilst guaranteeing a lightweight feel. As well as being hardy, the body has been carefully contoured to be as comfortable as possible to perform with, with bevelled edges and a tapered lower bout for your picking arm.
6-Bolt Neck Joint
In further proof of the S.U.B. Ray 4's potency, the neck is fitted using a 6-bolt neck joint, designed by Music Man. The joint gives the neck exceptional strength, which importantly translates into stability and immaculate tone transfer. However hard you rock out, you can rest assured that the sturdy maple neck will remain firmly in position.
Alongside making it tough, the neck has also been treated to a satin finish, which allows you to slide your hand along its entire length, without developing a sticky or tacky feel. Should you ever want to make an adjustment to the neck, simply attenuate the thumbwheel at the base of the maple fingerboard, and find the perfect feel for you. The fingerboard radius is shaped to 12-inches, perfect for executing smooth string bends and fast licks. With 21-frets at your disposal along the neck’s impressive 34-inch scale length, you have plenty of room to explore.
The S.U.B. Ray 4 electric bass guitar is equipped with a high output humbucking pickup, which translates the timbre of the tonewoods exquisitely. Within the pickup there are two rows of large magnetic pole pieces, which feeds through to the onboard two-band active preamp – with individual bass and treble controls, as well as a master volume control. The range of tones that this beauty can produce will astound and amaze, giving you a versatile tonal palette to play with.
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 in black is the perfect choice.
