Ernie Ball Music Man States:

The StingRay:

Since 1976 the StingRay bass has served as the gold standard of active electronic basses. With its famously punchy sound the StingRay defined the sound of slap bass that began exploding in funk and rock music in the mid-to-late-70’s onward.

This is the bass that started it all. Originally designed by Leo Fender and one of his closest collaborators Tom Walker, and beta tested by Sterling Ball, the StingRay bass features a uniquely powerful bridge position humbucker pickup, a 3-band EQ, an ash body, and a maple neck.

Imperial Guitar says:

We love Music Man basses, always have, always will. This is a sweet deal!

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.

This is a specific item that is also being offered for sale in our brick & mortar location. It is possible that it has just been sold. Please ask if it is still available before purchasing.

*It is our policy to require a signature on delivery of all musical instruments. Please let us know if you prefer no signature required when ordering or we will automatically require a signature.

If you prefer your item to be sent without a required signature Imperial Guitar and the selected carrier can no longer be responsible for the security of the package once it has been delivered.
