From its inception in 1976, the iconic StingRay bass had an immediate impact on bassists around the world as well as the music industry itself. The StingRay bass continues to be a popular choice among bassists working in studios and on concert stages everywhere. The Sterling by Music Man Ray34CA is based on that iconic design and pays respect to the StingRay legacy.
The Sterling Ray34CA Bass Guitar features a select solid swamp ash body. Music Man re-designed the electronics to feature an active preamp with volume, treble and bass controls and a single Music Man active Humbucking pickup with alnico pole pieces that deliver noise-free, warm tone. The Music Man designed 6-bolt neck joint used in all the Sterling Ray basses are strong and stable with no shift in the neck pocket for superior tone transfer. The Music Man-designed bridge uses a thick saddle for precise adjustments and stability. The familiar oval-shaped pickguard gives this bass its unmistakable identity. Finally, a deluxe gig bag is included.
