Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 4 HH SLO Special Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Thinner SLO Special neck feels amazing
  • Innovative truss rod adjustment wheel for easy fine-tuning
  • Compensated nut gives you incredibly precise intonation
  • Loaded with StingRay style, sound, and innovation
Thinner SLO Special neck feels amazing

Although the Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay's typically chunky neck is very comfortable and playable, it's still a bit thick for some players. Although Ernie Ball Music Man does make a Sterling bass with a thinner neck, it simply doesn't sound the same as a StingRay. In 2009, Ernie Ball Music Man created the StingRay SLO Special to address this issue. With a smaller 1-1/2" nut (rather than the usual 1-5/8"), the SLO Special is ideal for players who crave the look and sound of a StingRay, but prefer a thinner neck. Finished with gunstock oil and a hand-rubbed special wax blend, the back of the 4 HH SLO Special's neck feels amazing and lets your hand glide along effortlessly. And with its 6-bolt attachment, this bolt-on neck delivers stability that easily surpasses most set necks.

Innovative truss rod adjustment wheel for easy fine-tuning

Ernie Ball Music Man guitars and basses feature their innovative truss rod adjustment wheel, which makes it easy to fine-tune the neck. Just take anything small such as an allen wrench, nail, small screwdriver, etc., and poke it into the truss rod adjustment wheel. Turn the wheel a bit at a time until your neck feels just right, and your instrument will be ready to rock. Hey, if you're on a world tour and constantly exposing your instrument to varying temperatures, humidity levels, and such, you'll need to make some adjustments once in a while. When you do, you'll appreciate how easy it is to tweak the neck on your Ernie Ball Music Man.

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 another way your Ernie Ball Music Man guitar or bass will help you sound your best.

Loaded with StingRay style, sound, and innovation

The StingRay 4 HH SLO Special, like the rest of Ernie Ball Music Man's StingRay bass lineup, claims roots that run farther back than 1971, when Ernie Ball Music Man was founded. A Godfather of the solidbody electric bass designed much of the StingRay bass, and many believe it to be the natural evolution of his most popular bass design from the early '50s. Armed with fat and punchy humbuckers, active electronics, and a delightfully chunky neck it's no wonder the StingRay became a standard for such bass players as Guy Pratt, Cliff Williams, and Flea.

Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 4 HH SLO Special Electric Bass Guitar Features:
  • SLO Special maple neck delivers amazing comfort
  • Beefy humbuckers with active 3-band EQ provide a fat and punchy tone
  • Truss rod adjustment wheel makes for easy fine-tuning
  • Compensated Nut delivers incredibly precise intonation
  • Ernie Ball Music Man steel bridge with stainless steel saddles for maximum sustain
  • Schaller tuners for maximum stability
