Up for sale, a 2014 Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 4 H in mint condition and in perfect working order. This like-new bass comes complete with the original hardshell case and hangtags, boasting a metalflake sparkle "Orange Crush" gloss finish and gleaming gold hardware.
The flagship of the Music Man line, today's StingRay is the same as it was some forty years ago, featuring roadworthy construction, a massive hardened steel bridge, elegant oval pickguard, 3+1 tuning key configuration, and the ever popular Music Man humbucker. Governed by an active three-band EQ, the alnico humbucker offers punchy growl and thick, round thump. The tonewood combination of a solid ash body and maple neck provides ample warmth and articulation, with the note attack and midrange detail inherent in ash and the glassy articulation of maple. The bass weighs 10lbs 3oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 45-100 roundwound strings, comfortable action, and spot-on intonation.
The maple neck has a round C-shaped profile carve with generous shoulder and faintly rolled fretboard edges, featuring Music Man's gunstock oil and hand-rubbed special wax blend on the profile for a silky smooth feel. The profile measures .850" deep at the 1st fret and .930" at the 12th. The stainless steel medium jumbo fretwire is flawless, playing easily up the 34" scale length. The nut measures 1 11/16" in width, and the matching Orange Crush sparkle finished peghead features gleaming gold clover button tuning machines.
The electronics all function flawlessly with a three-band EQ, and the hardware includes a top-loader steel bridge plate and saddles. The custom color gloss finish is like new, and the smooth satin neck profile finish is flawless, highlighting a speckling of birdseye and curly flame figuring on the profile length.
The original hardshell case and hangtags are included.
