A Classic Groove Machine Reborn
Born in the 1970s, the Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay has become the go-to bass for countless rock musos, punk rockers, and indie bands, among many others. Stainless steel frets promise long-term durability, even under the fingers of the most aggressive player. The pickups have been redesigned for more punch and sonic range, and the updated 18-volt preamp system delivers impressive headroom for a wide dynamic range. Plus, to help get you through long sessions with extra comfort, the body has been redesigned — lighter-weight tuning machines and hardware contribute about a pound of weight relief.
Killer electronics for super-punchy bass tone
From the very first time you plug in your Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Special, you’ll appreciate both the phenomenal low-end punch and the massive tonal versatility its soapbar-style humbuckers deliver. Granted, these neodymium pickups’ stout pole pieces and beefy windings supply a solid foundation for your tone, but it’s the StingRay Special’s 18-volt active preamp and 3-band EQ that really let you sculpt your sound. As a result, everyone from shoegaze-era rockers to funk masters will enjoy the extreme punch this amazing instrument delivers.
Premium maple neck plays like a dream
There’s simply no substitute for a great neck. Ernie Ball Music Man put a ton of work into developing a neck that would provide you with the perfect balance of comfort, speed, and stability. For this StingRay Special, they spec’d premium roasted maple for the neck and fingerboard. Finished with a blend of special wax and gunstock oil, the back of the StingRay’s neck feels amazing, letting your hand glide along effortlessly. And with its 5-bolt attachment, this bolt-on neck delivers stability that easily surpasses most set necks.
Loaded with StingRay style, sound, and innovation
The StingRay Special, like the rest of Ernie Ball Music Man’s StingRay bass lineup, claims roots that run back to the 1970s, when Ernie Ball Music Man was founded. Armed with a fat and punchy sound, active electronics, and a delightfully chunky neck, it’s no wonder the StingRay became a standard for such bass players as Guy Pratt, Cliff Williams, and Flea. And this StingRay is outfitted with a maple fingerboard for a smooth, fast feel and added sonic attack.
