Music Man StingRay 40th Anniversary Smoothie Bass Smoothieburst 

The Music Man StingRay Smoothie Bass is available for pre-order now!

Since 1976 the Music Man StingRay has been one of the most recognized electric bass designs in the world.  In honor of its 40th birthday Ernie Ball Music Man is proud to introduce "Old Smoothie" StingRay, a reproduction of prototype #26 designed for Sterling Ball when he was developing prototypes back in the 70s.  

Named for its smooth even tone that is reminiscent of the highly sought after vintage Music Man StingRay sound, “Old Smoothie” has been precisely reproduced including the one-of-a-kind custom made 10 pole piece pickup design, body headstock and pickguard shape, 34-inch scale maple neck and fingerboard, low profile narrow frets, active electronics, hardware and exclusive chocolate-burst finish.
