New Gear: The Music Man Retro ’70s StingRay Bass Collection

The Music Man Retro ’70s StingRay Bass Collection is Here!

Ernie Ball Music Man honors Music Man’s American craftsmanship of the 1970s with the introduction of the Retro ‘70s StingRay Bass Guitar. Featuring an abundance of classic-inspired features, this Retro ‘70s model features four color options: black, white, vintage sunburst, and heritage natural. These colorways replicate the look and feel of Music Man’s ?agship 4-string bass and are each ?nished with a gloss polyester topcoat. This throwback edition bass is a faithful reproduction of the Stingray’s original speci?cations, with a 21-fret, 3-bolt maple neck with micro-tilt adjustment, bullet truss rod adjustment, a strings-through-the-body bridge with adjustable mute pads, and an alnico-loaded humbucking pickup. Overall, this vintage-inspired instrument exudes that classic tone and feel while combining the greatest qualities of traditional craftsmanship with contemporary playability and dependability.
