Super-affordable StingRay-style Bass!

The Sterling by Music Man Ray4 electric bass brings you the look, sound, and playability of the original Music Man StingRay line. For starters, the Ray4 gives you the comfortable feel of a contoured hardwood body and a smooth maple neck, a tonewood combo that serves up a delightful range of complex harmonics. On top of that, you get a high-output humbucking pickup and 2-band active EQ - the same electronics that provide StingRay basses with such tonal versatility. In fact, the only shocking surprise about the Sterling Ray4 is how inexpensive it is.
