The Ernie Ball Music Man Retro 70s Stingray bass resurrects the iconic vibes of the 1976 Stingray bass, delivering the unmistakable tone of various rock, pop, and hip hop recordings.
For those struggling to find an original vintage Stingray bass, the Retro 70s Stingray 4 emerges as the perfect solution. With features like the original-style three-bolt neck joint, chrome battery cover, muting system, and the pre-Ernie Ball logo, it not only looks the part but plays it exceptionally well.
This Stingray is built upon an ash body finished in high-gloss polyester, while the maple neck sports a "D" profile, 7.5" maple fingerboard with black dot inlays, 21 nickel silver frets, a slight yellow tint, and a high gloss polyester finish - all reminiscent of the classic Stingrays. The headstock features Schaller open gear tuners, accompanied by the original Music Man Stingray logo.
Equipped with the original two-band active preamp with volume, bass, and treble controls, it houses a single vintage-style alnico humbucking pickup with extended alnico 5 magnets, wound with original single poly-nylon wire.
From the factory, it comes fitted with Ernie Ball Super Slinky Bass roundwound strings in gauges .045w, .065w, .085w, .100w, and includes a Mono soft shell case.
