If you're a professional bass-player seeking a powerful, smooth-playing new instrument, then the Music Man StingRay Special - seen here with a stunning Amethyst Sparkle finish - could be just the thing for you.

First introduced to the world in 1976, the Music Man StingRay was the world's first production line bass guitars to feature on-board active electronics, and is widely regarded as one of the most iconic bass guitars ever created.

Now, perfected to meet the needs of the modern player, the StingRay Special delivers the same kind of tone and style as its forebears but with enhanced playability and power.

Music Man StingRay Special Bass, Amethyst Sparkle Key Features

  • Modern Take On A Classic - for decades the StingRay has been the goto bass of choice for countless professional bass players, and now the design has been refined for the modern player with the StingRay Special, for a more comfortable and lightweight playing experience than ever before
  • Slick Playability - in addition to a slimmer, more-contoured body than ever, the StingRay Special is equipped with a select Roasted Maple neck and - in this case - Rosewood fingerboard, both of which are designed to offer a super-smooth playing experience, whatever your playstyle
  • Powerful Electronics - In place of the more traditional Alnico magnet humbucker, Music Man have opted for Neodymium magnets in their StingRay Special lineup, which has a much stronger magnetic pull than Alnico for a much more articulate sound. Not only that, but the pickup is complimented by an 18v active preamp, to deliver the most powerful StingRay sounds ever
  • Reliable Hardware - delivering an ultra-secure playing experience, whilst at the same time being designed to compliment the StingRay Special's lightweight design, you'll find an all-new set of tuning machines with tapered posts. At the other end of the bass there is a vintage Music Man top-loaded streel bridge plate, which works to maximise string vibrational transference and natural sustain
  • Hardshell Case Included - to keep the bass safe when not in use, or when you're travelling to and from performances, Music Man have included a fitted hardshell case. This case boasts a rugged outer shell, with a plush-lined interior, and compartments for accessories - such as spare strings, cables, and straps
