Neck-through StingRay4!

Ernie Ball Music Man's StingRay4 HS solidbody electric bass gives you the solid bottom end you need to drive the most demanding rhythms. The choice of many of Sweetwater's most demanding bass players for its tonal versatility, this StingRay4 gives you a whole new level of low-end with a single-coil/humbucker pickup combo and neck-through construction. By combining an ash body and maple through-neck with killer active electronics and Ernie Ball Music Man's own massive-sounding pickups, the StingRay4 HS delivers everything you could ask for.

Ernie Ball Music Man StringRay4 HS Bass at a Glance:
  • Neck-through design for monumental sustain
  • Compensated Nut gives you incredibly precise intonation
  • Killer electronics for super-punchy bass sound
Neck-through design for monumental sustain

The StingRay4 HS owes its great tone and sustain in part to something you can't even see - a neck-through-body design. This construction technique adds to your sustain in a big way. Since the entire guitar is structurally integrated, with the pickups, bridge, and tailpiece affixed to the actual neck, you'll get better vibrational and tonal transfer through out the entire instrument.

Compensated Nut gives you incredibly precise intonation

Every Ernie Ball Music Man guitar or bass with a fixed bridge also has their patented compensated nut, and you'll hear the precise intonation across the entire neck. As Ernie Ball Music Man describes it, the compensated nut gives each string "an individual intonation pocket that slightly changes the effective string length, causing notes that traditionally play sharp to be more in tune." It's just one more way the StingRay4 adds to an already great playing experience.

Killer electronics for super-punchy bass sound

From the very first time you plug in your Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay4 HS, you'll appreciate both the phenomenal low-end punch and the massive tonal versatility the single-coil and humbucking pickup combo delivers. Granted, the extra-stout pole pieces and wide windings provided by these Alnico pickups contribute a solid basis for your tone, but it's the StingRay4 HS's active preamp and 3-band EQ really that let you sculpt your sound. As a result, everyone from Guy Pratt to Cliff Williams to Flea have enjoyed the extreme punch and fluid versatility this amazing instrument has to offer.

Ernie Ball Music Man StringRay4 HS Bass Features:
  • A performance-built bass any serious player can appreciate
  • Ash body coupled with a maple through-neck delivers amazing playability and sustain
  • Sweet single-coil and a beefy humbucker with active 3-band EQ gives you fat and punchy tone
  • Outfitted with Schaller tuners and a hardened steel bridge for maximum stability
  • Hardshell case included
Get fat bass tone and great sustain with the neck-through Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay4 HS!

I instantly fell in love with this bass the minute i held it. Everything about this instrument was perfect right out of the case. Sweetwater did an excellent job of setting it up and Musicman has out done themselves. I have waited a long time to own a neck through Stingray and when I saw it i knew I had to have it. The electronics are typical Musicman Stingray but the sound is fatter than any Stingray I have ever played. The fret work is flawless and very smooth with no rough edges. I have installed strap locks and a Hipshot bass extender but that is all I ever plan on doing to this work of art.
