StingRay Style and Tone!

The Sterling by Music Man Ray34 electric bass brings you the look, sound, and feel of the original Music Man StingRay line. For starters, the Ray34 gives you the comfortable feel of a lightweight ash body and a smoothly contoured maple neck, a tonewood combo that serves up a delightful range of complex harmonics. On top of that, you get the same amazing Music Man humbucker and 3-band active EQ that provide StingRay basses with such tonal versatility. In fact, the only shocking surprise about the Sterling Ray34 is how inexpensive it is.

Sterling Ray34 (Natural) Bass

This bass is beautifully made. Love the natural wood finish. Main thing is it plays and sounds fantastic. Every time I pick up to practice I find myself playing for an extended amount time. I recommend very highly, one of the best basses I've ever played. Thanks Sweetwater!
