Sweeeet, but how much? The newer stingrays have been a little pricey.
I'd hope the same, but EBMM bumped up their now-discontinued passive models (Caprice and Cutlass) above the price of the Specials.
I'd be in for a short scale Sterling in a heartbeat.
With only three knobs, and one being a rotary switch, I'd guess that it is indeed passive.
Time to start saving my $!!drool
I wonder what the other finish option will be. I’m hoping for black with roasted maple neck.
I'm saving up too. I'm SOOO down for this. Would love black and roasted maple. The little advert doesn't mention roasted maple neck, though?
Oof, that is gorgeous. Dare I say the proportions are even more pleasing than the long-scale.
Sweet I bet those will be a really top notch short scale, sounds like they did it right too by re-engineering the electronics. Price wise I'm afraid that they will be dangerously close to a custom Birdsong or Serek bass which will be difficult to rival in quality and sound
EBMM build quality alone will make this worth checking out. I tried/owned a Spector shortscale last year that I didn’t gel with, but that had nothing to do with the build quality, guessing these will be in that same $ range, maybe a bit higher. I will absolutely give these a look.
wow just saw this
Ernie Ball Music Man New for 2019
2019 SHORT SCALE STINGRAY BASS
The Ernie Ball Music Man Short Scale StingRay Special is a passive bass offering a big thumpy round sound in a convenient smaller package. The 30″ scale length allows for easier playability due to the shorter spacing between the frets. The body is made from ash, and the neck is constructed from hard rock maple with choice of maple or rosewood fingerboard. The Ernie Ball Music Man humbucking pickup has been specially designed for the short scale bass with higher output neodymium magnets, providing a warm signature tone. Electronics package includes a 3-way rotary switch featuring parallel, true single coil, and series modes. All three pickup selections can be augmented by a passive bass boost found by engaging a push volume pot. Like its big brother the Stingray Special, the short scale bass comes standard with a modern classic bridge, 22 stainless steel frets, and new lightweight Music Man tuning machines. Available in 2 finish options. Available September 2019 worldwide.
Great times for short scalers!
It will be interesting to hear how the Stingray sound works with a 30” scale. I’m thinking... more boingy...
Already posted in another thread. Hopefully mods can merge them.
That design works really well with the shorter neck, huh!
Wow, i didn’t even notice that first time. I wonder if that’s related to the tonal characteristics of SS, or just something new they’re trying.
This is one I could get into. I'm guessing the price will be pretty steep, however.
Another contender, but wait 'til September? Some of us are old.
