Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray

5/5, 5 from 29 reviews
The StingRay. Few electric basses are as flat-out cool or have as much powerful tone. Upon introduction in 1976, it was the first bass to feature

    • + Thick and chunky neck, Easy truss rod access, Huge tonal options, Good finish on the neck and the body
    Cons
    • - A bit heavy
    I got this bass as a second hand and it was like a brand new bass. The nice chunky neck made me feel comfortable than playing a thin neck of jazz bass. You can get any tone you want with this. Funky flea sound, mellow ballad tone, or a heavy metal tone. The best part of this bass in my opinion even though there are tons of good things about this bass, is the truss rod access. You dont have to loosen up the strings, unscrew the truss rod cover or remove the neck, You just pop in the allen key and its all set. The neck only have a slight bit of finish on it so your hand doesnt slip around when you play.

    5 string sting ray mid 80's
    This is the best sounding instrument I've ever owned. A lot of talk about Precisions these days. But if you needed one bass to do it all, this is the one.
