⚌Reduced‼ Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 5 Bass Honeyburst, 2004

⚌Reduced‼ Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 5 Bass Honeyburst, 2004

Introduced in 1987, the Stingray 5 bass was the first new bass offered following Ernie Ball’s purchase of Music Man, and has consistently had a solid following. This model is based on the Music Man Stingray bass introduced in 1976 and partly designed by Leo Fender, with input from Sterling Ball. When first introduced, it was quickly adopted by players like Tony Levin and others who frequently needed lower C or B notes, but without sacrificing the tone of higher pitches.

Ibanez RG421 03 Superstrat Mahogany Oil

Ibanez RG421 03 Superstrat Mahogany Oil

The Ibanez RG421 03 model is a familiar looking guitar commonly referred to as a “Superstrat”. This name comes from their appearance, similar to the Fender Stratocaster, but with features extending function beyond Fender’s stock models. This model from Ibanez sharpens its lines to give it a more modern appearance, and unlike many ‘Superstrat’ versions uses a fixed or ‘Hard Tail’ bridge rather than a trem or vibrato. The Ibanez RG421 is a simple looking well thought out guitar.
