The Ernie Ball Music Man short-scale StingRay Special bass offers a big thumpy round sound in a convenient smaller package. A 30” scale allows for easier playability due to the shorter spacing between the frets. The ash body is finished in a glossy Starry Night sparkle burst, and the neck is constructed from hard maple with a rosewood fingerboard.
The Ernie Ball Music Man humbucking pickup, equipped with higher output neodymium magnets, has been specially designed for the short scale bass, providing its signature warm tone. Electronics package includes a 3-way rotary switch featuring parallel, true single-coil, and series modes. All three pickup selections’ audio signals can be augmented by a 20dB boost by engaging the push volume pot.
Like its big brother the Stingray Special, the short scale bass comes standard with a modern classic bridge, 22 stainless steel frets, and new lightweight Music Man tuning machines with a finer gear ratio.
This StingRay Short Scale is in factory-fresh condition, with no dings, dents, fretwear, or shop wear. The guitar will come with the original hard-shell case, and will ship in the factory packaging. DuBaldo Music Center's legendary case candy is also included.
