This Musicman Stingray Special is not just one more model within the classic Stingray model. It is actually the new official Stingray. It features so many improvements and updates that Ernie Ball decided this would be the new standard, and we couldn't agree more.

These are the most significant upgrades:

- Rounded body edges: apart from being more comfortable to play, it is also lighter in weight. Special attention is also paid to wood selection for the body, using only lightweight ash and addressing one of the traditional complains amongst Stingray users: the weight. 

- New lighter and improved machineheads: with a lightweight bass such as this one, you need light tuners if you want to avoid neck diving. Also these are a notch above traditional tuners and show excellent mechanics and feel.

- Roasted neck: the neck wood is thermally treated so that humid content is drastically reduced, making the neck much more stable. At the same time, it makes the bass look just great, similar to those old vintage basses that we all love.

- New neodymium humbucker pickup: you get the traditional Stingray tone but with more punch and a fuller sound. We love it.

- New 18 Volt 3 band preamp: with a new pickup you need a new preamp too. All 3 bands have been redisgned to make the most of the pickup and the result is awesome. Deeper lows, fuller sounding mids and softer highs. Absolutely brilliant. The extra headroom you get from a 18 volt preamp will come in handy when you need to bring all the power and low end from this bass.

To sum up: a classic reinvented and improved. Our favourite Stingray so far.

As you can see in the pictures, this is the 4 string single humbucker pickup model

First introduced in 1976, the StingRay has been revered as one of the most iconic bass guitars in history. The StingRay was the first production four string bass to feature onboard active equalization. The flagship of the Music Man line, today's StingRay is the same as it was some forty years ago, featuring a solid roadworthy construction, elegant oval pickguard, 3+1 tuning key configuration, and the ever-popular Music Man humbucker -- all of which combine to produce a look, feel, and sound that is remarkably unmistakable.
